Until 1926, Azeri was written in Arabic script, which then was replaced by the Latin alphabet and in 1939 by Cyrillic.With the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Azerbaijan and other Turkic-speaking former Soviet republics reintroduced the Latin alphabet.However, the main body of modern Azeri literature and educational material is still in Cyrillic, and the transition to the Latin alphabet is a time-consuming and expensive process.The generations that learned Russian and read Azeri in Cyrillic still feel more comfortable with Cyrillic.
According to the 1989 census, Azeris accounted for 82.7 percent of the population, but that number has increased to roughly 90 percent as a result of a high birthrate and the emigration of non-Azeris.The two Azerbaijans developed under the influence of different political systems, cultures, and languages, but relations are being reestablished. The Azerbaijan Republic covers an area of 33,891 square miles (86,600 square kilometers).It includes the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region, which is inhabited mostly by Armenians, and the noncontiguous Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic, which is separated from Azerbaijan by Armenian territory.Russian loan words have entered Azeri since the nineteenth century, especially technical terms.
Several Azeri dialects (e.g., Baku, Shusha, Lenkaran) are entirely mutually comprehensible.
It is believed that around thirteen million Azeris live in Iran.
