4.0 out of 5 stars Takes time, but one good book 6 Jan. 2009
By ksiezycowy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's hard to truly evaluate this book without other Uyghur textbooks in English, but that is precisely the problem. There are very few textbooks for Uyghur in English, and they don't tend to be to widely distributed. That makes this book one of the few that is accessible (for obtaining). Now to the book itself. It is a difficult book to get used to. The format is not like most modern language textbooks, but it is workable. You just need to read all sections, including the beginning sections on phonetics and morphology before the actual lessons begin. The lessons are good. They offer Uyghur script for the conversations, and vocabulary and grammar/culture notes. The grammar notes can be quite long, however. Overall though, if you can get use to the format this is actually a very descent textbook.

I would not recommend this as your first textbook, but perhaps as a secondary textbook for review and revision.

(There is now a much better textbook to start with that is free online and has audio, search for "Greetings from the Teklimakan: a handbook of Modern Uyghur")

1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading title, dubious content. Very confusing. 14 April 2006
By Kapir - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I didn't even find this a useful research tool. Hahn makes self-contradictory assertions and adopts an outdated framework of analysis. According to my well-educated and well-traveled native-Uyghur language consultant, the language described within "is not Uyghur". Much of the vocabulary consists of the names of American states, which is honestly pretty useless. It is a wonder that so much research, including the cooperation of a well-known linguist, Ablahat Ibrahim, could produce this volume. On the other hand, it's all we've got, unless you read Chinese or Russian.

1.0 out of 5 stars misleading title 4 May 2003
By William Dirks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Instead of samples of the colloquial language, this book presents standard literary Uighur, termed "spoken" only because it is in dialogue format. Has lengthy sections giving technical description of the (literary)language. Overall, a strange combination of meticulous research and glaring omissions. While useful as a reference for the study of standard Uighur, those wanting to learn spoken Uighur should look elsewhere.
