Tatar is a language belonging to the Turkic language group, spoken mainly in Russia, notably in Tatarstan where it is the official language (Kazan Tatar). Spoken by around 4 million speakers, Tatar has been written in the Cyrillic alphabet (with a few specific letters) since 1939, and it is in this script that the vast majority of printed texts are found.

Turkic languages are taught at Inalco as an introductory course as part of the Turkish degree.
