Some linguists call it a mixed language, having a mostly Turkic grammar, essentially Uyghur, but a mainly Iranian vocabulary. Other linguists argue that it does not meet the technical requirements of a mixed language. It is spoken by the ynu, a nomadic people. The ynu people call their language yn . Due to the variant Aini it has to be distinguished from the Ainu language of Japan and Russia, to which it is not related.show more
