The Azerbaijani language is the official language of Republic of Azerbaijan and is widely spoken in northwestern Iran.
Azerbaijani is a Turkic language related to both Turkmen and Turkish, but draws its greatest influence from both Arabic and Persian.
About four million speakers of the Azerbaijani language are monolingual while some 98 percent of those who speak Azerbaijani regard it as their first language. In addition to the speakers residing in Azerbaijan, Azerbaijani is also spoken in Georgia, eastern Turkey, northern Iraq, and in the Russian Republic of Dagestan.
Azerbaijani is an old language whose earliest written texts date to the sixteenth century. Akinchi, the first newspaper published in Azerbaijani, began in the year 1875. For centuries it has been considered a language of lyric poetry, but in recent times has become a common language in the region for science, engineering and journalism.
It was originally written in a Perso-Arabic script, but was changed to Latin characters, and then to Cyrillic by the Soviets. Since independence, Latin script is used.
Estimates of the number of speakers varies, especially due to uncertainty about the figures from Iran. An estimated 20.1 million speak Azeri in Azerbaijan, many as a second language, with another 1.5 million in Iran. There are between 25 and 50 million native speakers worldwide today.
Azerbaijani is also known as Azeri Turkish, Azari, Azeri, and Azerbaijani Turkish.
Azerbaijani is also called Azeri, there are no differences between the two as they are one and the same language.
