Learn Azerbaijani

The Turkic languages spread from SE Europe to Western China, with lots of the Central Asian languages being Turkic in origin. Although the writing system of the Turkic languages may differ (Latin, Cyrillic, Arabic alphabets), there are strong similarities in grammar and vocabulary. There is no grammatical gender, which will be a relief to those who have struggled with the concept of masculine and feminine nouns in Romance languages!

Fun facts about Azerbaijani

Azerbaijani is closely related and mutually intelligible with Turkish, for the most part. However, many similar words can have big differences in meaning. For example, 'Subayım' means 'I am an officer' in Turkish but 'I’m single' in Azerbaijani.§§

There is no verb 'to have'.

An Azerbaijani proverb, Ədəb bazarda satılmaz, means 'politeness is not sold in the bazaar' (or, 'it's not easy to be polite').
