The Azeri language

Azeri (or Azerbaijani) is a Turkic language spoken primarily in Azerbaijan by over 25 million people. The language has official status in Azerbaijan and in Dagestan (a federal subject of the Republic of Russia). Curiously, it does not hold official status in Iranian Azerbaijan, where the majority of Azeris live. The language is also spoken to some extent in Georgia and Turkey.

Azeri and Turkish are to a high extent mutually intelligible, and therefore they are considered to be within the same dialect continuum. Estimates of the percentage of shared vocabulary tend to range from 50% to 70%, with 60% figuring in many of them. Grmatically the similarities are likely to be even more abundant. For example, 'how are you' is 'necəsən' and 'nasılsın' in Azeri and Turkish respectively. Aside from Turkish, Azeri is also closely related to Qashqai, Turkmen and Crimean Tatar. One distinguishing feature in Azeri and Turkish is the number of loan words: Azeri has more loanwords from Arabic, Persian and Russian (kartoshka - potato is one example), which would not be well understood in Turkish, as Turkish uses more French loanwords (kamyon - truck, kravat - tie). Since we have a conjugator of Turkish, we advise you to have a look at that to have more of a general overview of the grammar of Turkic languages.

Azeri is known for having used and changed multiple alphabets. The Arabic script (and even multiple versions thereof: the Arabic, Turkish and Persian ones) had been used in the region until the 1920. In 1922 the Latin alphabet, known as Yanalif, was introduced. However, that was changed to the Cyrillic script in 1939 by Soviet authorities, in an attempt to tie the country closer to the Soviet Union. When Azerbaijan regained independence in 1991, it switched back to the Latin script, although with some slight modifications. Some further modifications to the script were also adopted in 1992, giving the Azeri alphabet in use today.

Azerbaijani itself has two primary dialectal divisions: the Northern one (spoken in the Republic of Azerbaijan and in Russia, and based on the Shirvani dialect) and the Southern one (spoken in Iran, and based on the Tabrizi dialect - sometimes Southern dialects are called Türki).

Azeri conjugation

Azeri has a conjugation system largely similar to that of Turkish (refer to our page on Turkishfor more information on that). Azeri tends to conjugate verbs by multiple factors. Some important ones are:

  • tense: you have the present, past, and future, so for example, 'görmək' (to see) becomes 'görürəm' (I see)
  • number: you have number conjugations for each person, so you have a distinction between 'xoşlayıram' (I love) and 'xoşlayırsan' (you love)
  • positivity/negativity: compare 'açır' (open) and 'açmır' (its negative version)

However, there are multiple other factors, such as aspect (how the verb relates to the passage of time), mood (whether something is doing or being done), etc. Just click or find some verb in Azeri to try it out.
