(...another one very late to the party
Is there anyone else here currently learning Uyghur?
I've been spending a few days going over the script, and I started chapter one of Greetings from the Teklimakan
this morning (although my notes are 90% written only using isolated letter forms, hah). So far it's a lot more similar to Kazakh than I was expecting!
қалам / قەلەم
мұғалім / مۇئەللىم
жақсы / ياخشى
қағаз / قەغەز
кім / كىم
емес / ئەمەس
жоқ / ياق
etc.I.. probably spelled all of those wrong.
But I'm sure the differences will be more apparent when I know more than 10 words.
Anyway, I'm having fun already, and I'm excited to start learning this beautiful language!
