Turkish Language History

The land of modern day Turkey has been inhabited by alternating tribal communities since the Neolithic age. The Orkhon monuments are the earliest known artifacts that indicate a written language had developed in modern day Turkey. The Orkhon monuments are stone slabs that were inscribed with the Gokturk alphabet and were the earliest written form of the Old Turkic language. The Gokturk tribes migrated to Turkey from the lands of Inner Asia and were responsible for producing and spreading Old Turkic. The language spoken in modern day Turkey is a descendant from Old Turkic. Turkish is believed to have spanned a significant area in Central Asia spreading throughout the region with the migrating tribes. Old Turkic artifacts have recently been found outside of Turkey which lead experts to believe that earlier forms of Turkish developed much earlier than the 8th century.

Between the 6th and 11th centuries, migrating tribes of Turks arrived in modern day Turkey and established their respective cultures in the territories among Asia Minor. It is believed that these traveling communities started out in eastern Asia and traveled westward to land in the middle east and other regions in Europe. The Oghuz Turks were the first known tribes to arrive in and establish a culture that lasted in Turkey. Prior to the arrival of the Turkish Oguzes, different people had lived in Turkey but had not permanently set up a stable and lasting society. The first documented Turkish dictionary was completed during the 11th century.

Turkish is linguistically different from many other languages, including English, in reference to its typology. In a normal Turkish sentence, the verb comes at the very end of the sentence. The Turkish language is thus structured in a Subject-Object-Verb or (SOV) order. This grammar rule can be difficult for foreigners to comprehend, especially those coming from a language with a dissimilar typology.
