Abstract

This senior thesis describes the role and usage of different languages in Kyrgyzstan from the 1920s to present, with specific reference to government policy regarding language usage. In the thesis, I argue how the pervasive presence of Russian in Kyrgyzstan is indicative of broader Kyrgyz foreign policy goals.
