How Borat put Kazakh on the map

When you say Kazakhstan, some people immediately think of Borat – a completely far-fetched American comedy. This film met with a wave of criticism mainly from the Kazakh people. This resulted in authors and critics engaging in petty squabbles.

Paradoxically, in the film, Borat speaks Hebrew and the characters that are supposed to speak Kazakh actually speak Romanian. Borat isn’t even a Kazakh name. But at the end of the day, Kazakhstan thanked Borat, because after the release of the film, the number of visa requests increased tenfold and the demand for Kazakh language courses also went up. The film significantly raised awareness about Kazakhstan around the world.

Confident language

Kazakh belongs to the Turkic language family together with Turkish, Azerbaijani, Turkmen, and other languages. Apart from Kazakhstan, it is spoken in Afghanistan, China, Iran, Mongolia, Turkey, and Uzbekistan. The overall number of native speakers is approximately 13 million. Kazakhstan has two official languages: Kazakh and Russian. The use of both languages is guaranteed by the Constitution.

Kazakhs are an especially proud nation, confident about their language. The development of language and script was influenced mainly by politics, and so Kazakh means much more to the Kazakh people than just a means of communication.

Nowadays, Kazakh is written in three different ways: Cyrillic, Arabic and in the Latin alphabet. Originally, Kazakh used the runic alphabet, but it later switched to the Arabic alphabet, which is still used by Kazakh speakers in China. Gradually, the Latin alphabet was reintroduced and is now used for example in Turkey.

The present-day Kazakh alphabet contains 42 characters. For some time Kazakhstan debated language reform, focusing on the re-adoption of the Latin alphabet. In 2017, the reform was passed, and since then Kazakhs have been using Latin script.
