Uzbek is a Turkic language and was declared to be the official language of Uzbekistan in October 1989. During the Soviet era, it was written with a Cyrillic script, but now is written in a Latin script in Uzbekistan. Cyrillic is still used in Uzbek communities outside of Uzbekistan, however, such as in Tajikistan.

In the CIS countries, about 24.7 million people speak Uzbek as their native language: about 1.2 million in Tajikistan; 1 million in Afghanistan; 550,096 in Kyrgyzstan; 332,017 in Kazakhstan; and 317,333 in Turkmenistan.

This course will be taught by our visiting scholar from Bukhara, Uzbekistan, Sunatillo Amonov.
