Uzbek alphabet and characters
The Uzbek alphabet should display only the following characters. If your document is not showing correctly, then first check that the encoding for that program and font supports Turkic languages.
Despite the official status of the Latin script in Uzbekistan, the use of Cyrillic is still widespread, especially in advertisements and signs. In newspapers, scripts may be mixed, with headlines in Latin and articles in Cyrillic.
Uzbek grammar rules
Like other Turkic languages Kazakh is agglutinative, e.g. grammatical forms are created by adding various suffixes to fixed stems. There are various rules for the ordering of suffixes. Uzbek uses post-positions rather than prepositions to signal grammatical relationships.
Nouns have plural and singular forms. There is no grammatical gender. There are five cases: nominative, genitive, dative, accusative, ablative. There are no articles.
