Updated (2018.2.20): Added the latest official Kazakh Latin Alphabet, I called it the Qazaq Latin Alphabet 2.0 (QLA 2.0) for testing.
Updated (2017.10.31): added 3 more scripts for testing more alphabets.
The Latin alphabet of the Kazakh language of 25 letters was presented by Erbol Tleshov, director of the Republican Coordination and Methodological Center for the Development of Languages, at the parliamentary hearings on the transition to the Latin alphabet in September, 2017. The alphabet includes eight digraphs for eight specific sounds. In order to distinguish it from other presented Kazakh latin alphabets, here I call it – “Kazakh Latin Alphabet 25 Letters Plus 8 Digraphs”.
To test out Tleshov’s alphabet, I created the following script which can convert the Kazakh Cyrillic to his alphabet. It is always good to have a test for a lenghty text, then you can have a good picture about usefulness of the the alphabet. In my opinion presenting just few example are not enough. By testing out a chunk of long text, you can not only test effectiveness and practicallity of the proposed alphabet, but also test the typographical features and aesthetics of the script.
At the same time, I introduced a variation of this alphabet to have 3 umlauted vowels instead of 3 digraph vowels. For detail, you can read Kazakh Latin Alphabet (25 letters plus 3 umlauted vowels and 5 digraph consonants ). You can have a chance to compare both alphabets at real time.
