Minority Turkic languages in language contact situations in Iran: case studies
Gemeinsame Veranstaltung mit dem Institut für Iranistik der Österreichischen Akademie der Wissenschaften
Abstract: Turkic speakers in Iran approximately make up a quarter of Iran’s population. Most of these spoken varieties belong to the Oghuzic branch of Turkic, and its speakers identi-fy themselves as Turk/Tork and their language as Turkī/Torkī. The only non-Oghuzic Turkic language of Iran is Khalaj, forming an independent Turkic language group, of-ten referred to as Arghu in Turcological studies. In my talk, I will present diverse con-tact-induced features both regarding Oghuzic varieties and Khalaj.
