O'zbek tili haqida - About Uzbek Language

Today is special day for Uzbek language (O'zbek tili). In year 1989, 21st October, Uzbek language become official language of Uzbekistan. And new era for development of the Uzbek language started.

Turkic speakers have probably settled in the Amu-Darya, Syr-Darya and Zeravshan river basins since at least AD 600–700, gradually ousting or assimilating the speakers of Eastern Iranian languages who previously inhabited Soghdiana, Bactria and Chorasmia. The first Turkic dynasty in the region was that of the Karakhanids in the 9th–12th centuries AD, who were a confederation of Karluks (Qarluq), Chigil, Yaghma and other tribes. Uzbek can be considered the direct descendant or a latter form of Chagatay, the language of great Turkic Central Asian literary development in the realm of Chagatai Khan, Timur (Tamerlane), and the Timurids (including the early Mughal rulers of India).

Uzbek audio lessons - Numbers

Assalomu alaykum,

Today, We continue our audio lessons series with episode 10 - Numbers in Uzbek. Some notes before we start lesson.

You might already seen, I have updated some lessons that has audio embedded from Soundcloud. Instead of using another service which makes audio posting bit complex and time consuming. I decided to stay simple and attach audio in a post with HTML5, if your browser doesn't support it then will play audio with Flash player. Another reason is that limit on Soundcloud, 2 hours which will run out sooner or later. Although, I like Soundcloud service, they have limited features for free accounts.

Uzbek Story: How fox made fool of lion!


Assalomu alaykum,

Today's Uzbek lesson is for advanced and intermediate language level students. But I hope beginners will also learn some vocabulary. Story/tale is about "how fox made fool of lion".
"Did you know? O'zbek means independent or the lord itself (O'ziga bek), from O'z (self) and Bek/Bey/Beg (noble)."
- Wikipedia
Note that there will not be translated version of the story, please listen and try to understand meaning of the story. First please read the story and then listen, then listen and read, at the end we will have some vocabulary. Good luck!


Tulkining sherni laqillatgani. (How fox made fool of lion.)

Bir kuni tulki kechki payt qorni ochganini sezib, uyasidan chiqibtida, yegulik biror narsa topish uchun o'rmonga yo'l olibdi. Rosa charchab tinka madori quriguncha yuribdi. Lekin arzigulik biron nima topolmabdi.

Tulki kechadan beri tuz totmaganini eslab, mazali ovqatlardan benasib qilgan sherdan xafa bo'libdi. Kuni kecha u o'rmonga yaqin bir qishloqqa kirib borib bir g'ozni xalqumidan endi tishlab olib, qochmoqchi bo'lib turganida, to'satdan sherni o'kirganini eshitib qolgan ekan. Shunda tulki g'ozni tashlab qochib qolgan ekan. Agar o'sha sher bolmaganida mazza qilib ovqatlangan bo'larkan. G'azab tulkini aql xushini olib qo'yibdi.

U yo'lni ham pisand qilmay ketayotgan ekan, to'satdan, oldidan sher chiqib qolibdi. Tulki qo'rqib ketibdi. Vujudini titroq bosibdi. Lekin shunday bo'lsa ham o'zini bosib
-"Hoy sher, tezroq qochib qol hozir bo'ron ko'tariladi", debdi.
-"Men juda og'irman uncha buncha bo'ron menga pisand emas", debdi sher.
-"Qanday qilasan axir shamol juda qattiq bo'ladiku"
-"Yerga yotib olaman"
-"Bu tadbiring yordam bermaydi. Seni bo'ron uchirib ketadi"
-"Men daraxtga mahkam yopishib olaman"
-"Shamol beto'xtov ber necha kun davom etadi. Shuncha kungacha daraxtni quchoqlab tura olmaysanku axir"
Shunda sherni o'takasi yorilib,
-"Unday bo'lsa ayt nima qilay", deb o'kiribdi.
-"Kel men seni daraxtga bog'lab qo'yaman. Shunda har qanday shamol ham senga bexavotir bo'ladi", debdi tulki.
-"Voy, ajoyib fikr"!
rozi bo'libdi sher. Tulki sherni daraxtga bog'labtida o'zi sal naridagi qamishzorga kirib o'tiribdi.
-"Nega endi sen bo'rondan saqlanish uchun bironta panaroq joy qidirmayapsan", deb so'rabdi sher.
-"Hmmm, nega desang hech qanaqa bo'ron bo'lmaydi", xotirjam javob beribdi tulki.
Sherni g'azabiga qaynab ketib qattiq bo'kiribti. Shu zahoti har xil hayvonlar yig'ilib kelishibdi. Ular daraxtga bog'lab qo'yilgan sherni va uni yonida xotirjam o'tirgan tulkini ko'rib hayron bo'lishibdida bu voqeaning tafsilotini so'rashibdi.
-"Kecha kechqurun ovqatdan benasib qilgani uchun uni men bog'lab qo'ydim. Bu voqea hammangizga ibrat bo'lishi kerak. U kuchsizlarga hamla qilishdan o'zini tiysin", deya tushuntira ketibdi tulki.
Shunday qilib tulki ularni oldidan viqor bilan qaddini g'oz tutib hech kimni pisand qilmay o'tib boribdi. Hamma hayvonlar undan qo'rqanlaridan ehtirom bilan ta'zim qilib kuzatib qolibdilar.

Uzbek grammar lessons - Adjectives 2

Assalomu alaykum,

Like in English language we have also comparative adjectives in Uzbek language.
Comparative adjectivesSifat darajalari.

In Uzbek we have following similar types:

⑴ oddiy daraja - normal form or regular adjectives
⑵ orttirma daraja - superlative form of adjectives 
⑶ qiyosiy daraja - comparative adjectives 

⑴ This type of adjective does not have any suffixes and known to be core (base) of adjectives. 

Examples: yashil (green), yumshoq (soft), sariq (yellow), yengil (light [weight]), qattiq (hard), qisqa (short).

⑵  This type describe very high or low quantity of the objects or subjects. And usually made by adding following words front of the adjectives: juda (very), juda ham (greatly), g'oyat (extremely), g'oyatda, nihoyatda, eng, hammadan. (similar exaggerate words)

Examples: juda og'ir (very heavy), juda ham qattiq (greatly hard), g'oyat go'zal (extremely beautiful), g'oyatda bema'ni (truly nonsense), nihoyatda uzoq (very far), eng kuchli (greatly strong). 

⑶ This type of adjectives created by adding "-roq" to the base of adjectives and describe comparative quantity of the objects or subjects. 

Examples: qoraroq (blacker), uzunroq (longer), qattiqroq (harder), aqlliroq (smarter), torroq (narrower).

Besides above types there are another 2 form of adjectives in Uzbek. Namely,  Weaken (Ozaytirma) and Strengthen (Kuchaytirma) adjectives (sifatlar). 

1. Weaken adjectives describe less or light marks of the objects and subjects.

Examples: oq (white) - oqish (whitish), qora (black) - qoramtir (blackish), sariq (yellow) - sarg'ish (yellowish), qizil (red) - qizg'ish (reddish), yashil (green) - och yashil (greenish or light green). 

2. Strengthen adjectives vice versa, increase or strengthen the mark.

Examples: qora - qop-qora (very dark black), tim qora (strong black); oq - oppoq (very white or strong white), ko'k (blue) - ko'm-ko'k (strong/dark blue), tekis (smooth) - tep-tekis (very flat), yumaloq (round) - yum-yumaloq (very/even round), katta (big) - kap-katta (big enough), yolg'on (lie) - g'irt yolg'on (completely lie), ho'l (wet) - jiqqa ho'l (very wet), sariq (yellow) - sap-sariq (yellowish).


Here now continue audio lessons with Adjectives 2, part two adjectives in Uzbek.

Memrise - Uzbek Learning tool

Assalomu alaykum,

Quick tips, remember when we talked about Anki tool that can help you to learn vocabulary in Uzbek?!
memrise uzbek, learn uzbek language in memrise, uzbek language tips

Few days back I find out about Memrise (memory rise) language learning tool. And I think it is kinda fun to test new tools and use them to learn Uzbek or any other language.

Number of lessons in Uzbek is limited, but you can get started with Everyday Uzbek, perhaps we will create more interesting levels with different topics. In future, we will expand this course and possibly create new ones. Join course and start planting... :)

Memrise even has app for smartphones (Apple devices, Android devices) where you can even make lessons available for offline use. App can download entire course and let you practice offline.

After you start learning you kinda start planting plants, and every now and then tool asks you to water plants (review what you have learned earlier) to refresh memory and learn for long terms.

Practice and see if tool helps you to stay motivated!

Ko'rishguncha!

About Samarkand Bread

Assalomu alaykum,

If you travel to Uzbekistan, you must try Samarkand bread (Samarqand noni). As one says, even with bakers from Samarkand tried to bake bread in other parts of the country, couldn't get same taste and flavor. That is why it is only made in Samarkand with its water, air and ancient wisdom.



Whenever I travel to my home Bukhara, train pass by Samarkand, and we get a chance to take some of these yummy breads. hmm I miss the taste of Uzbek bread...

Have you had a pleasure of tasting Samarkand bread? Share your experience...
