Kazakh is a Turkic language spoken in Kazakhstan. Kazakh is spoken by the majority of the population and is called the “state language”, while Russian is called the official language, and is normally used for business situations.
The official national anthem of Kazakhstan is the wonderful Менің Қазақстаным (My Kazakhstan), whose music and lyrics are a world apart from the fake version used in the parody film “Borat”.
Kazakh was first written with the Arabic script, then the Roman script and since 1940 with the Cyrillic script. In 2006 the Kazakh President revived the idea of reverting to using the Roman script.
Kazakh is mutually intelligible with Kyrgyz.
