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.
