The Gagauz language (Gagauz dili) is a Turkic language, spoken mainly by the Gagauz people and the official language of the autonomous Moldovan region of Gagauzia. Gagauz has two dialects: Bulgar Gagauzi and Maritime Gagauzi. Gagauz is classified as a distinct language from Balkan Gagauz Turkish.1
Originally, it used the Greek alphabet. Beginning in 1957, Cyrillic was used. The current Gagauz alphabet is a Latin-based alphabet, modelled after the Turkish alphabet, with the addition of two letters: ⟨ä⟩ to represent the sound of [æ] (as ⟨ə⟩ in Azeri) and ⟨ț or ţ⟩ to represent the sound [ts] (as in Romanian).
