Improper reversion edit

Your reversion was not appropriate. By convention, removal of a post from a talk page is considered evidence that the editor has read the post. With some rare limitations which do not apply here, editors are allowed to remove anything they choose from their talk page.--S Philbrick(Talk) 15:12, 9 September 2016 (UTC)Reply

Seljuk Turks edit

I had noticed your "discussion" and have been searching for some source(s). To suggest the Seljuk Turks did not speak Oghuz Turkic(or some Turkish dialect) is nonsense. To be able to write it out in the proper script, however, may take some effort(or a linguist). Anyway, I did find these two sources.

  • The Great Seljuk Empire, by A.C.S. Peacock, page 181-182, "Turkish remained the every-day language of court, and was probably much more widely used than the scanty surviving evidence suggests. Tughril relied on his vizier Kunduri to translate from Arabic and Persian into Turkish for him, and Turkish songs were sung at the wedding of Tughril to the caliph's daughter..[....].. The most telling evidence, however, of the importance of Turkish is the great Turkish-Arabic dictionary, the Diwan Lughat al-Turk, compiled in Baghdad for Caliph al-Muqtadi by the emigre Qarakhanid prince Mahmud al-Kashgari.

FYI, Al-Muqtadi lived from 1056 to February 1094.

  • The Ghaznavid and Seljuk Turks: Poetry as a Source for Iranian History, by G.E. Tetley, page 142, "That the Seljuk warriors and Oghuz shepherds of the 11th century were at first illiterate in Turkic is shown-among other things-by the way they adapted the Arabic alphabet(vowels and /?/) to what they spoke when they did decide to write their own Turkic dialect at the end of the 13th century."

The question mark is a symbol that resembles an "n" combined with the "j". I was unable to find something that looked like that. Sorry.

Hopefully this helps.--Kansas Bear (talk) 05:03, 13 September 2016 (UTC)Reply

I know that word you are talking about, it is widely used in Turkic languages, and I tried to pronounce it, I remember Mengli Giray having that letter in his name. Also thanks for the A.C.S. Peacock reference, I think he is a leading scholar in the Seljuq studies, that book just came out last year, I will try to get my hands on it. Alexis Ivanov (talk) 12:13, 13 September 2016 (UTC)Reply
Alexis I found another source;
  • Early Mystics in Turkish Literature, by Mehmet Fuat Köprülü, Gary Leiser, Robert Dankoff, page 207, "...become the local language of the regions invaded by the Oghuz tribes, especially Anatolia. The Oghuz literary language, which had taken form and developed even before the Oghuz settled in Anatolia, i.e. while they were still living in the Syr Darya area, retained its basic features, although it quite naturally underwent some minor changes in Anatolia. Thus, Western or Southern Turkish, which is known as Seljuk Turkish until the founding of the Ottoman state and Ottoman Turkish thereafter, is simply a developed form of the old Oghuz dialect.
  • After the establishment of the Seljuk state in Anatolia, Turkish became a written language, but we cannot determine exactly when. Oghuz Turkish had been used for written coorespondence even before the Seljuks settled in Anatolia." --Kansas Bear (talk) 07:08, 16 September 2016 (UTC)Reply
@Kansas Bear: Thanks for these sources, I'm going to bookmark them and research more, thank you very much Alexis Ivanov (talk) 22:10, 16 September 2016 (UTC)Reply

seljuk empire-seljuk dynasty edit

I appreciate the efforts of Alexis.thanks

seljuk turks living oghuz yabgu state.they did not live in Ghaznavids domination.They conquered iran. they adopted persian culture and language. but they are not assimilated(persianate). Seljuk dynasty dynastic-military-army-daily talk language=oghuz turkic yes seljuk empire official language persian.but dynasty not persian speaking. They did not even know persian language.so persian language interpreters , and queen in the Persian had to turn around.

The military says that the Persian language. this is really a ridiculous situation. they were people with a culture of warriors and warrior. so the persian language was never army.--Osman bey (talk) 12:32, 13 September 2016 (UTC)Reply

I agree they lived in Oghuz Yabghu state, but you have to remember the main cities of Khurasan they conquered were Ghazanvid cities, Nishapur and Marw and many others. So it wasn't Ghaznavid domination 100% but it was Ghaznavid lands, but we all know what happened, Battle of Dandaqan in 1040, Yes they spoke Oghuz Turkic. Alexis Ivanov (talk) 12:50, 13 September 2016 (UTC)Reply

The Seljuks spoke Oghuz Turkic, one of many Turkic dialects. However, the Seljuk leadership and military had already begun using the Persian language while living among the Ghaznavids in Khurasan. Throughout the period of Seljuk imperial expansion the rulers of the Seljuks used Persian in government and sponsored the writing of Persian literature. But the great numbers of Turkic nomads, herders, and raiding bands whose migration westward coincided with the rise of the Seljuks spoke Oghuz Turkic or other Turkic dialects and continued to do so. A century later, when the Mongols, another Turkic people, overran much of the Middle East and Central Asia, they brought still more Turkic-speaking soldiers and migrants into the region. Stokes, Jamie, ed. (2008). Encyclopedia of the Peoples of Africa and the Middle East. New York: Facts On File. ISBN 9780816071586. p 615.

Seljuqs were Persianized before gaining any power. Oghuz Turkic was the language of "Turkic nomads, herders, and raiding bands" and they have nothing to do with Seljuqs as a ruling dynasty. The source is talking about Turkic migration during Seljuq era. That's it. Beside that, the language was Oghuz Turkic, and there is no surviving evidence of that language as used by Seljuqs. Modern Turkish specially with Latin alphabet has nothing to do with Seljuqs -- Kouhi (talk) 09:07, 12 September 2016 (UTC)

Showing in this way reveals the source of ignorance on the subject. Mongols not turkic people and turkic speaking. mongol people originate eastern asia(manchuria)

seljuks not persianized.This means that assimilated. they were adopted persian culture and language. persianized and adopted. it has another meaning. seljuks adopted not assimilate. I'm not saying to Turkish nationalism. but (kouhi) trying to convert them to the persian empire and Doing enmity. It should be unbiased on this issue.--Osman bey (talk) 13:28, 13 September 2016 (UTC)Reply

NW Sasanian Persia - Caucasian Albania - Balasagan edit

Hey Alexis, I noticed you being involved in several articles of that era, hence, I wondered whether you would be willing to create a minor section sometime in the future on the Arab military campaigns in the area of Caucasian Albania/Albania (satrapy)/Balasagan during the Muslim conquest of Persia. Doesn't need to be anything spectacular, just a few lines of a new section would be great on itself. It's actually the only region of the Sasanian realm that's kinda lacking on the article. Yes, the article is, quality wise, in a very poor state, but at least the "basic" headlines are "kind of" there except for, seemingly, the conquests/campaigns in C. Albania/Balasagan. Let me know if this would be something that you would be willing to do sometime. Bests and take care - LouisAragon (talk) 05:35, 16 September 2016 (UTC)Reply

I'm not going to edit war with you about it, but it isn't a good practice to direct people to an article that doesn't exist as you did here. You should talk to your mentor about it. They'll clear it up for you. Cheers mate!--Adam in MO Talk 03:17, 20 September 2016 (UTC)Reply
