hmmm once i read that Ahiska was the bridge between Azerbaycan & Erzurum culturaly & lingusticly. Since there is no Ahiska anymore Kars will do (it's a couple 100km south). Especialy the Dialect in Ardahan(more notably Posof) is verry close to the Ahiska Dialect. But what is special to the Ahiska dialect is that some words or most words are the same but are pronounced different more like a Northern Dialect like Crimean tatarca.
The Salar forum admins Idriss, Edriss, Salurbatur, Arzu are looking to have friends who speak English to participate in this same forum. They would be very happy to meet Ihsan, Babur, Sarmat, hjernespiser and ALTAR to draw from your vast knowledge in steppes culture.
The Salar forum has an English discussion forum and several admins are educated in British or American universities, and are currently seeking international friends through English or Turkish language mediums.
I told them that some esteemed members from our forum can be admins for the English subsection of Salars.cn. Our forum currently is looking to develop a theme with all English commands and greetings, so that it will be more user-friendly to international friends.
Please come in and say hi! We are ready to embrace you as our Turkist and Turanist brothers.
incubator.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wp/slr/Main_Page Please help write the Salar Wikipedia Preferrably Salar language articles. However, it is permissible to use Turkmence, Azerice and Qirim Tatarca articles. It is preferrable that Turkce articles be arranged so that they are closer to Azerice in orthography.
However, we understand that it is necessary to create an English interface for non-Chinese speakers to sign up. Or at least have Eng-Chi translations so that non-Chinese speakers can be walked through the signup process.
Please post in the English section salars.cn/bbs/forumdisplay.php?fid=57 your self introduction, your interests in Steppes history, and things in your knowledge about the Oghuz peoples, cultures, historical states that you find especially interesting.
