About the Turkish language
Turkish is the principal member of the Turkic branch of the Altaic family of languages and is the official language of Turkey and one of the official languages of Cyprus.
It is spoken by around 70 million people in Turkey, Northern Cyprus and by ethnic minorities in Eastern European countries and immigrant communities in other parts of the world.
It replaced the Arabic-based Ottoman script by the Roman alphabet after its formation as a republic in 1928, at the same time removing many Arabic and Persian words from its vocabulary.
