Current Use of Ottoman Script for Turkish in Iran and Afghanistan
The Ohio State University : Turkish was written in an Arabic script and usually called “Ottoman” after the Ottoman Empire for some 1000 years before the change to a Romanized alphabet, used after the establishment of the Turkish Republic in the 1920’s. Since Republican reforms included radical revision of Turkish vocabulary and syntax, Ottoman and Modern Turkish are considered to be two separate languages. Today the script continues to be used for Turkish in some areas of Iran and Afghanistan, and as an alternative to the Cyrillic script in Turkic republics of the Soviet Union. Efforts in Turkey to transliterate pre-Republican literature continue as well. This course, the second in a proposed three-course sequence, will continue preparation of students for study in literature, linguistics, art or historical research requiring a knowledge of the old script and conventions of the pre-Republican literary language. They will gain fluency primarily in reading and will also learn to write.
