Anatoli Petkov asks: How similar are the Kazakh and Kyrgyz languages?
Expert's answer:
The Kazakh and Kyrgyz languages are very similar to each other, more than 90% of the basic words are common. The difference lies mainly in pronunciation. The pronunciation of the Kazakhs is softer, closer to the Russian, and the Kyrgyz pronounce the words more firmly. In addition, most of the phrases the Kyrgyz pronounce on exhalation.
