Not at all. And I'm suprised in fact. Turkic languages are really hard to study and you know it pretty good, plus you're a native speaker of English language :O

Haha! Thanks, you're too kind. I'm not brilliant at it (I'm better at Turkish than Uzbek) but I love the Turkic branch of languages Teeth smile I used an Uzbek textbook/dictionary I have for some of the words, but most of them I knew already.

Even the native speakers don't know all words, trust me Teeth smile Yes, I'm also better at turkish than Uzbek. I can understand turkish and make up sentences in turkish (turkish is my 2nd language), but I can only understand the other turkic langauges, can't make up sentences lol. But the grammer is the same for all turkic languages (except writining) Teeth smile

HAHA! Yeah, I'm not surprised you know Turkish well Regular smile Azeri and Turkish are very closely related. You might understand a little Turkmen, more likely when it's written rather than spoken (as they have weird pronunciation lol). Uzbek is another block over. Still a lot of common ground, though!
I like to use this song that Göksel sings as an example of the relationship between Turkish and Uzbek:

You know, all the words that we use when speaking turkic languages are all turkish words. Old words and etc. (but exception for borrowed words). But Yes, now you're right, cause Azerbaijani is the official turkish langauge. But the turkish langauge that people who live in Turkey use has changed a bit. Teeth smile

Well, Turkic languages actually spread from East Asia to Central Asia and beyond, not the other way around (unless I've misunderstood what you meant by 'all Turkic words are Turkish words'?).

From Wiki: "The Turkic languages originated in a region of East Asia spanning Western China to Mongolia, where Proto-Turkic is thought to have been spoken, according to one estimate, around 2,500 years ago, from where they expanded to Central Asia and farther west during the first millennium. The Seljuqs of the Oghuz Turks, in particular, brought their language, Oghuz—the direct ancestor of today's Turkish language—into Anatolia during the 11th century."

But that's why all the Turkic languages are similar in some ways - because they evolved from Proto and Middle Turkic languages and diverged over time into their separate branches Regular smile Uzbek is in a different branch to Turkish and Azeri. Kyrgyz and Kazakh are in the same branch and they are very similar, but are further away from Turkish/Azeri. There's a degree of mutual intelligibility between them.

But yeah, the Turkish spoken today is very different from Ottoman Turkish, which as you know had so many Persian and Arabic loanwords and was written in the Arabic script. I'm so glad that changed haha... it would've been more difficult to learn! Regular smile Sorry for the essay haha. I love learning about this stuff!

Well, I will explain you. But the comments section isn't the best place for that. I'll send you a PM
