The teaching staff of Suleyman Demirel University held a round table on the topic "The New Alphabet: the key to the modernization of national consciousness." The event was attended by experts from Ahmet Baitursynov Institute of Linguistics and IT specialists of SDU.
It should be noted that such an event at the university is not the first time to be held. In 2014, within the framework of the international conference, an international round table was held under the title "Latin alpabet: analysis and choice". In 2015, three universities were selected, including one hundred SDU students.
At the event, linguists discussed a new version of the Kazakh alphabet and presented their own research. The emphasis was on the phonetic features of the Kazakh language and the integration of the alphabet with the digital industry.
In addition, Professor of Suleyman Demirel University, Doctor of Philology Kuralai Kuderinova and members of the student organization "Academic Club" presented their work.
"Our goal is to conduct scientific experiments on scientific, artistic and official texts on two drafts submitted to President in these two Latin graphs, that is, to identify texts in accordance with new projects and identify difficulties. Everyone expressed genius, did real research, - concluded Kuralai Kuderinova.
Representatives of the younger generation gave their arguments, comparing works of great literary heritage, such as "The Way of Abai" with modern texts. They also wrote all the words in the dictionary of the Kazakh literary language, identified difficulties and advantages, implemented them in practice, and acquainted with the results.
At the end of the event, university experts expressed the opinion that the transition to the Latin alphabet of the Kazakh script will be closer to technology and will become the basis for the development of digital science.
