Chuvash (Чӑвашла, Čăvašla; ) is a Turkic language spoken in central Russia, primarily in the Chuvash Republic and adjacent areas. It is the only surviving member of the Oghur branch of Turkic languages.
The writing system for the Chuvash language is based on the Cyrillic script, employing all of the letters used in the Russian alphabet, and adding four letters of its own: Ӑ, Ӗ, Ҫ and Ӳ.
Famous quotes containing the word language:
“The language of Friendship is not words, but meanings. It is an intelligence above language.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
