Turkish

Turkish is spoken by 80 million people as a native language. The majority of these native speakers live within the Republic of Turkey and Cyprus, but also in Germany, Azerbaijan, Greece, Macedonia, and Bulgaria.

Under the leadership of Kemal Ataturk in 1928 the Turkish government replaced the Ottoman Turkish alphabet with the Latin Script.

Turkey is by different measures the 17th and 18th largest economy in the world. Turkey has traditionally been the bridge between Europe and Asia, a role that it holds to this day as it is the only nation to straddle two continents.

Turkish is distinct among its Arab and European neighbors as its grammatical structure is Subject-Object-Verb as opposed to the Subject-Verb-Object. I books read = I read books
