The Kyrgyz language is the national language of the Kyrgyz people, a form of national culture, the state language of the Kyrgyz Republic. The Kyrgyz language belongs to the system of Turkic languages by origin, and together with the Altai language forms the Kyrgyz-Kypchak group of the Eastern Hun branch.
The first and foremost condition of a literary language is its written form. Written literary language can develop only in nations that have their own writing system. Despite the fact that the Kyrgyz people have used different writing systems in their centuries-old history of development, they achieved their national script only after the October Revolution. Therefore, the Kyrgyz written literary language is a product of the Soviet system.
However, the existence of writing is a prerequisite for literary language, but it is not its only personal feature. Not all the monuments of the past on paper or the "illiterate" writings of today can be considered as examples of literary language. In particular, even in the pre-revolutionary period in the Kyrgyz language, mostly in the form of manuscripts, there were mostly poetic works (for example, songs, categories, poems of Moldo Kylych, Togolok Moldo, Moldo Niyaz singer, Isak Shaibekov and others).
Our ancestors inherited an inexhaustible vocabulary. It is our duty to study them, to enrich our consciousness and language. "Red language before industry" - our people highly valued the art of speech. That is why they created such a great epic as Manas.
