General Information[]

Nureki, (Nureki: noraqçı ; Tajik: Норакӣ, Norakī), is a turkic language taking root in Sogdia along side the local Sogdian and Tajik languages. It comes primarily from Old Turkish and Farsi loans. Reletively recently, Russian loans began appearing mainly for recent advancements such as the computer or the nuclear bomb. Nureki is an agglutinative language using various suffixes to express grammatical relationships. Another feature of Nureki is the creation of new verbs by attaching a root to the verb (such as attaching prepositions to verb roots in French).

Phonology and Orthography[]

Allophony and Morphophonology[]

[l~ɫ] works like Russian: [ɫ] is usually everywhere except before palatal vowels where it becomes [l].

Vowel harmony occurs with every word (see Vowel Harmony and Ğ)

/l/ becomes /ğ/ before another consonant.

Low ɑ ɑ:
Diphthongs: {aɪ̯ eɪ̯ ɵʏ̯ oʊ̯}

Vowel Harmony and Ğ[]

Nureki features a slightly irregular and mandatory vowel harmony which matches front/back vowels. The system works head-initially where the vowel in the syllable following the one of the static vowel will change front/backness to agree (for example, -lar/-lerhööt, tree, has a front vowel. So, when the plural marker is attached, it takes a front vowel: höötler, trees. To compare, dokat, nine, has a back vowel. So, the opposite happens and the collective marker takes a back vowel: dokatlar, nines). The exception is when the Old Turkic had -oy- which becomes -öy- in Nureki regardless of the backness or frontness of the rest of the vowels. If the word is backed, -öy- does not affect it, göynamaq, to play, and vice versa. 

These are the relationships:

Front Back
i <-> ɯ
e > ɯ
y <-> u
ø <-> o
e < ɑ
ɑ* > o*
e* > ø*

(*) This is a rounding changing which applies rarely in certain suffixes in the same fashion as the front/back change. The vowel that will change will agree to the roundness of the preceding syllable's vowel's roundness and front/backness. For exmaple, the collective suffix, -ağ. This suffix can be the following: -ağ, -eğ, -oğ, -öğ. Note the following: oğr, fortune/luck, becomes oğroğ; daş, spider, becomes daşağ; çeriğ, army, becomes çeriğeğ. 

Writing System[]

There are two alphabets: the old, Soviet-era Cyrillic one and the newer, pan-turkic Latin one. Gradually, but surely, the Latin variant is overtaking the Cyrillic one therefore the article will be written with the Latin one.


А , Б , Г , Д , Е , Ё , З , И , Й , К , Ќ , Л , М , Н , О , П , Р , С , Т , У , Ў ,  Х , Ч , Ж , Ш , Ы , Ю 

{ a , b , g , d , e , ø , z , i , j , k , c , l~ɫ , m , n , o , p , r , s , t , u , w , h , tʃ , dʒ , ʃ , ɯ , y }

Long vowels receive a macron. When the Soviet alphabet was used, the sound /q/ hadn't developed yet, so to represent this phoneme, the most common symbol is къ or қ. The same applies to /c/, which is represented by кь or ќ.


A , B , C , Ç , D , E , G , Ğ , H , İ , I , K , Ķ , L , M , N , O , Ö , P , Q , R , S , Ş , T , U , Ŭ , W , Y , Z

{ a , b , dʒ , tʃ , d , e , g , ~ , h , i , ɯ , k , c , l~ɫ , m , n , o , ø , p , q , r , s , ʃ , t , u , y , w , j , z }

Ğ ğ is a special letter with no clear value. Instead, it is a sort of auxiliary letter to mark diphthongs on certain letters. They include:

  • Ağ ağ - [aɪ̯]
  • Eğ eğ - [eɪ̯]
  • Oğ oğ - [oʊ̯]
  • Öğ öğ - [ɵʏ̯]

Any other combination however is silent such as between vowels or after a vowel not listed above. Long vowels a written doubly. 



Nouns do not decline to anything. Instead, they are a root with various suffixes put thereon and compound verbs. 

Order of Morphemes[]

fill in later

But, as a sketch, it'll be: plurality, case, possession


There are 8 cases. All cases come directly from Old Turkic. Cases fuse with suffixes of possession (although, most are simply suffixes on suffixes). None of these suffixes are applied to the roundness change, except with a few exceptions. 

In the table, each case will be shown with its potentially fused suffix of possession.

There are two numbers: singular and plural. Singular is unmarked, and the plural takes the suffix -lar/-ler (agrees with the vowel harmony). The plural form also happens to be a formality marker when speaking to people of high authority where it would be attached to the appropriate word (for example, the word bodşa, king, would take the pseudo-plural formal marker, becoming bodşa, when used as a vocative or addressing a monarch in anyway) fix.

Some nouns can be "collective" which is equivalent to Germanic "mass" nouns. This is indicated by the suffix -ağ. This suffix is better explained under Vowel Harmony.  


These suffixes indicate possession or relationship of the word attached thereto. There is a cetain sandhi with singular number suffixes. After vowels or ğ, the suffixes does not take a vowel. For example, denırıdenırı-m but gırgır-ım. This is similar to the 3rd person suffix: denırıdenırı-sı but gırgır-ı. The 3rd person plural suffix follows the same patter as the collective suffix -ağ (information under Vowel Harmony). 

Singular Plural
1st -(i)m -miz
2nd -(i)n -niz
3rd -i / -si -ları


Adjectives are much looser than in English or romance languages where often times, an adjective can equally be a noun. When a possessive suffix is put thereon, the adjective represents the quality of the owner. Adjectives themselves can also be suffixed after a fully suffixed verb as an adverb. 

However, a given noun can be clarified as an adjective with the suffix -liğ/-lığ.  

Adjunct / Adverb[]

A noun or postposition is put into the instrumental case when it functions as an adjunct (adverb to a noun). A noun, postposition, or adjective receives the suffix -ti / -tı.

Derivatives and Suffixes[]

  • -(i/ı)ç

The first diminutive is used solely with the first person possessive suffixes, -(i/ı)m, to show a sense of the endearment of the object by the speaker. (anaçım = my [dearest] mom; güdegüçim = my [dearest] son-in-law).

  • -kine / -kını

The second diminutive which is used to give a sense of smallness or belittlement to the object by the speaker. (dağ mountain > dağkını hill ; gor town > gorkını off-the-map town)

  • -siğ / -sığ

Only used with adjectives, it means "similar to." (ağdunlı golden > ağdunlısığ gilded ; caşlı old/aged > caşlısığ aged-esuqe / elden-like)

  • -eyüt / -ayut

An honorific that is applied to white-collar-esque people and soldier (such as a merchant, a soldier, a business) as a form of respect, signigaling that they have honor. (serböz soldier > serbözeyüt honorable veteran)

  • -deş / -daş

Someone who is a follower of something, usually a religion. 

  • -çi / -çı

It is used to name a language, an national group, or a profession.

  • -siz / -sız

Can be applied to both nouns and adjectives although meaning different things. When attached to nouns, it means, in essence, "without" or "a lack of." However, when attached to an adjective, it negates the quality of the adjective. (çeriide in an army > çeriidesiz without being in an army ; ağtunlı golden > ağtunlısız not-golden)

  • -(i/ü/ı/u)m

Only put on certain nouns and adjectives which are gendered to represent the feminine form of that noun (e.g. deniri, god > denirim, goddess)

Copulae and Auxillaries[]

The simple copula (as in, the copula presenting equals: "he is happy", "that is a tree", "we are here") is er-. It is placed before nouns as a sort of prefix ("It is a tree" = an er-hööt).

The "place-holder subject" (i.e., "there is" / "there are") is bar-, positive, or yek-, negative. 

The epistemic auxillary is bol- / boğ-.   

Clitics and Particles[]

The vowel of the head noun affects the vowel of the clitic/particle. 

  • eḳ / aq : emphatic particle ; before the head
  • ceḳ / caq : "just", "exactly", "right" ; it functions as a pseudo-definite article, but can be placed on any part of speech ; before the head
  • -mu / -mü : interrogative particle (although, it can be treated as a suffix on verbs; then it will be placed at the very end of the complete conjugated verb) ; after / suffixed to the head
  • gen / gın : functions like ceḳ/caq but for temporal adverbs ; before the head
  • en / an : makes a superlative ; before the head
  • deki / dakı : makes a positive comparative ; before the head
  • asdakı : makes a negative comparative ; before the head
  • ici / ıdı : emphasizes a nominal/temporal negative (like "never", "nothing", "no where") ; before the head
  • nen / nan : emphasizes a qualitative/quantitative negative (like "not any", "neither") ; before the head
