Kirabaev of the Institute of Philology and Multilingual Education of Abai Kazakh National Pedagogical University will host an international online conference on the topic "Writing in the world of the Turks: Latin graphics - the beginning of spiritual renewal (Rukhani zhagyru)".
During the conference, the issue of changing the alphabet, which is one of the new ideological platforms in the country`s development, will be considered in various aspects. The experience of the Turkic peoples who switched to the Latin script will also be taken into account.
The online meeting will be attended by domestic and foreign scientists and students.
The purpose of the conference is to support the measures taken at the state level to gradually switch the Kazakh alphabet to the Latin alphabet until 2025, to call on all our compatriots to understand the importance of this decision.
In addition, the new national alphabet in the Latin alphabet helps to remove unnecessary sounds that are not typical for the Kazakh language, and restores the original melody and harmony of our language.
