Abstract

Political, Historical and Environmental Factors at LanguageTransmissionfrom Generation to Generation: the Model of Uzbek Originated Afghan Immigrants who live in Gaziantep, Turkey Since language has a major role for transmitting the cultural values of the society to the next generations, it is the basic unit of the society that ensures the continuity. Although it is a natural process that the language of the society, which is learnt in the family first, interacts with the other languages and changes throughout this interaction, it cannot be accepted as normal that the members of the society forget their mother tongue and interact through other languages. It is the result of the fact that the members of the society could not transmit their mother tongue to the next generations because of some political, historical and environmental factors. For instance, Uzbek originated Afghan immigrants, who were brought from Afghanistan in 1983 and were housed in Gaziantep in Turkey with a political decision made in 1982, were interacting in Persian not in Uzbek, which is an evidence showing how some political, historical and environmental factors can be effective on hindering language transmission to the next generations. In this study, we tried to investigate the causes and results of the language corruption among these Uzbeks via the survey we conducted on these Uzbeks, even the last members of the royalty ofBukhara Khanate. Consequently, the questions asked in the survey aimed to find out the effect of language corruption on culture change, and the effect of these culture changes on the sense of belonging.
