Bible ( کتب, Библияни, Muqaddas Kitob )
"Uzbek is a Turkic language, spoken by almost 5 million people
in Soviet Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, and Chinese Turkistan.   The
Uzbeks, or Sarts, are Musl_ms, descended from remnants of ‘the
Golden Horde’ that conquered Uzbekistan early in the 16th
century.   Two main dialects of Uzbek can be noted: the central
dialect, as spoken in Tashkent, and that of the south and north-
west, as used in Samarkand and Bukhara.   Uzbek shows con-
siderable influence from Tadzhik.   A literary language based on
Jagatai as spoken by the Uzbeks of Tashkent, developed in the
15th century, but modern literature is closer to colloquial urban
usage.   Arabic script was abandoned in 1928 for Roman, which
in turn was replaced by Cyrillic in 1940."
