Project idea[edit]

The Bashkir language (Башҡорт теле, Başqort tele) is a Turkic language, and is the language of the Bashkirs. It is co-official with Russian in the Republic of Bashkortostan.

Speakers of the Bashkir language mostly live in the Russia, Republic of Bashkortostan. Many speakers also live in Chelyabinsk, Orenburg, Sverdlovsk, Samara and Kurgan Oblasts, Khanty–Mansia, Tatarstan, and Udmurtia. 1.6 million of two million Bashkirs live in Russia. Others live outside Russia. They may not know Russian. Especially the younger generation. 44,114 children of Bashkortostan enrolled in the Bashkir schools. 80,222 children of Bashkortostan studying in Russian schools, but studying the Bashkir language as their mother tongue[1]. The number of native speakers decreased – 1.45 million (2002), 1,22 million (2010). The use of the Bashkir language is limited[2]. In 2009, the Bashkir language was included UNESCO Atlas of the World's Languages in Danger[3].

Wikipedia entry in the Bashkir language developed since 2005. It contains about 30,000 articles. In 2012, the number of active editors Bashkir Wikipedia has grown from 44 in January to 69 in December. Quick poll conducted by novices personal correspondence and learned what difficulties they experience when editing articles. All participants complained about the lack of online dictionaries and reference information the Bashkir language. Spending a lot of time to search for text in the Bashkir language. Number of texts on the Internet in the Bashkir language limited.

  • It is therefore necessary:

Publish them online and Wikisource.
  2. Communicate modern authors. Ask them to put a books published in the past in the Bashkir Wikisource.

Strongly endorsed! My colleague, a Turkic language librarian in the US, is quite interested in seeing the texts chosen for this project, because some Bashkir language materials are simply unavailable altogether. Djembayz (talk) 12:12, 23 March 2013 (UTC)
