Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Karakalpak is a Turkic language mainly spoken by Karakalpaks in Karakalpakstan, as well as by Bashkirs and Nogay. Ethnic Karakalpaks who live in the viloyatlar of Uzbekistan tend to speak local Uzbek dialects. Karakalpak is a member of the Kypchak Turkic family of languages, which includes Tatar, Kumyk and Kazakh. The Kipchak family is a subgroup of the Turkic languages, which some linguists believe to be member of an Altaic language family. Within the Kypchak Turkic family, Karakalpak is most closely related to Kazakh and Nogai. Due to its proximity to the Uzbek language areal, much of the vocabulary and grammar has an Uzbek influence.show more
