Hi everyone,

I'm currently trying to teach myself Tatar, for reasons of academic interest rather than anything else, but am becoming frustrated by the sheer lack of materials - I'm using this site: http://www.tatar.com.ru/sam/index.php but it's not really sufficient and I'd rather not learn my third/fourth language through the medium of my second. Is it similar enough to any other Turkic language for the materials to be interchangeable?

Any thoughts much appreciated

Joanne

a couple of links Mar 30, 2009

If you understand Turkish, here's a useful link to a site that compares Turkish, Tatar and English:

Which Tatar language? Mar 31, 2009

Joanne, you may want to know there are at least two major kinds of Tatars - Kazan and Crimean. And I think there are Bashkir and Ufa tatars but they are close with Kazan ones. Kazan and Crimean tatars are two different etnicities, languges and cultures. I am half Crimean tatar (my mother comes from around Djankoi). Sadly I do not quite speak the language but love when I hear it, love their songs, foods etc.
