Кичинекей Ханзада (Kichinekey Khanzada), in Kirghiz or Kyrgyz language (кыргызча).

The Kyrgyz language, belonging to the Turkic language family, is the official language of the Kyrgyz Republic (Kyrgyzstan). It holds a crucial place in the cultural identity and national heritage of the Kyrgyz people. Kyrgyz is spoken by the majority of the population in Kyrgyzstan and by some communities in neighbouring countries, including China, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan.

Kyrgyz is a member of the Kyrgyz–Kipchak subgroup of the Kypchak languages, and modern-day language convergence has resulted in an increasing degree of mutual intelligibility between Kyrgyz and Kazakh — and possibly with Karakalpak. The language has several dialects, with the northern and southern dialects being the most prominent.

Historically, the Kyrgyz language was written in various scripts, including the Orkhon (Old Turkic) script, Arabic script, and Latin script. Since 1940, it has been written using a modified Cyrillic alphabet, which includes several additional letters to represent sounds specific to Kyrgyz.

The Kyrgyz people have a rich oral tradition, including the epic of “Manas,” which is one of the longest epic poems in the world and a cornerstone of Kyrgyz literature and identity.
