The 15 dialogues in Part II of the book may be useful to learners, however. Now, if you are a linguist or if your Uyghur is at an advanced level, then you may find this book extremely useful, as it is very comprehensive and even treats points too obscure for many other texts. In short, I give this book a lukewarm recommendation if you're a beginner or intermediate learner, but recommend it very highly if you're a linguist or if your level is advanced.

Renee Gaines, "Uyghur Grammar". Michelle Bridges, "Auxiliary Verbs in Uyghur". A master's thesis dealing specifically with Uyghur auxiliary verbs. If you're just a learner of the language, I would recommend skipping on this one unless you're at an intermediate or advanced level and would like another refresher on auxiliary verbs, in which case Section 2 may be of benefit.
The mention of auxiliary verbs appearing in causative forms is also interesting, as I don't recall having read about it in any of the other texts. Quite a good book on the grammar of the language, and an excellent reference, though not as comprehensive as some of the heavier grammar texts.
A companion conversation guide is also floating around somewhere, though I haven't looked at the latter. The only drawbacks are the hefty price and the fact that it's written strictly as a reference i. I would call this the "Bible of Uyghur grammar", as it is - in my opinion - the most professional and comprehensive grammatical treatment of the language to date. Probably not the best reference for beginners who want to learn the language and those without a linguistic background, however, as this is basically the English translation of the original Uyghur text intended purely for Uyghur linguists and not foreigners learning the language.
Still a priceless reference, however. I do have the Uyghur version for those interested see below. A doctorate thesis on auxiliary verbs in both Uyghur and Uzbek. Though academic in nature, I believe this to be invaluable to those who want to figure out better how these tricky auxiliary structures work, as the author not only goes through all of the auxiliaries and gives their meanings, but explains the nuances of how similar verbs may differ slightly in meaning, and how this may be recognized.
I didn't read Chapter 4, which talks about Uzbek verbs, but highly recommend Chapter 3, which is where the Uyghur auxiliaries and their meanings are detailed.

I would skip Chapters 1, 2, and 5 if you're a learner and not a linguist. Nadzhip, "Modern Uigur". This book is an important resource for those interested in a number of fine points of the Uyghur language, but is probably far too dense for the average learner. A few of the points mentioned seem in contradiction with what is presented in the more modern books, but this should not be surprising given the book's age.

The Russian original is unfortunately not in my possession. Super old book that deals with a number of grammar concepts, but is not at all appropriate for the learner as it's written in the very old Arabic Uyghur script that most Uyghurs today would have trouble reading although there is usually the Latin version given just after , and as some of the concepts are outdated or incorrect by current standards it is not clear which, but given what Raquette had to work with back in , it would not surprise me if he simply misunderstood certain concepts without any contemporary research to rely on.
However, if you do know the language fairly well, the book may be worth a look as it's quite interesting and many of the concepts discussed are surprisingly valid a century later. Many thanks to Forrest McMunn for going through the trouble of scanning this, and for sending it out to me. Well, this one's extremely interesting if you like history and like to observe how a language evolves over time.
Written some years ago, this book is not really an accurate reflection of modern Uyghur and is more recommended as leisure reading.
At the same time, a number of the grammar points inside are still valid today, though certain ones with some amendments. A number of authentic documents e. Very interesting research work, but unfortunately a is expensive, b is written exclusively for linguists, and c focuses in particular on the Uyghur dialect of Turfan and not on the standard Uyghur that most learners are probably after. Check the Google Book preview and then decide if this is something you want to acquire. An English-Uyghur dictionary that seems to be more intended for Uyghur learners of the English language.
Daniel St. Henry G. Schwarz, "An Uyghur-English Dictionary". With respect to dictionaries, I give my preference to the free, handy, and sufficiently comprehensive Yulghun , but if you would like to put up the money for an authoritative and bound volume, then this one is probably not a bad choice. PDF versions are also available, but I will not supply them here. Have not read this one yet, but looks like an interesting PhD thesis for those more academically oriented.
Kontovas, G. Nazarova, "Uyghur Poetry Reader". A collection of Uyghur poems with both the original versions and the English translations, and with grammar notes, to boot. Have not looked through this one yet, but it looks like a neat little document. A phrase book intended for travellers coming to Xinjiang. Have not looked at it yet, but looks pretty good. This is a relatively compact coursebook intended for advanced-level students of the language, and follows the standard Chinese lesson formats of text-dialogue-vocabulary-grammar-exercises.
The difficulty level tends to fluctuate very quickly, mostly due to the vocabulary, as the texts use a lot of context-specific terms while the dialogues are relatively simple. Not very much attention is given to grammar, but overall the book isn't bad and is one of the few available materials intended specifically for the advanced level most learner coursebooks stopping at intermediate. This is part of the same series as the advanced level coursebook above, and although it's titled as a coursebook for "spoken Uyghur", it is essentially a general coursebook for beginner students, with lessons also including grammar and reading exercises.
I have not gone through it in detail. This book follows the standard format i. The texts are not very interesting, either, with many written like vocabulary cram sessions e. I would recommend looking at one of the other Mandarin books instead. A very short coursebook written by a professor at the Xinjiang Normal University. Follows the standard format and does not delve into intermediate concepts. When I first picked up a copy of this book, I was expecting it to be just like the many other books on the Uyghur language written in Mandarin.
I was, however, pleasantly surprised to discover it to be quite comprehensive in its coverage of the grammar and do recall it covering some points that many other books did not. I am attaching a scan here as this is probably very difficult to find if you're outside of Xinjiang. This is probably the standard textbook used in the Uyghur language classes that are given in different universities in Urumqi or, at least, this was what we used when I took class there.
Fairly comprehensive and well put together. A reader intended for advanced-level students of the language. I've used this a little in the past, but have not done a thorough inspection to be able to give it a fair review. However, the reading selections appear to be fairly good, if my memory serves me right, and some of the exercises following each passage appear to be good for learning idioms. A book that focuses on listening and speaking, and is intended for high-intermediate and advanced level students.

A friend of mine gave this one a good recommendation, though I've yet to look through it. There are also accompanying audio files that may be downloaded here many thanks to Darren Byler for getting me these. Have not looked through it yet. This is probably the most "classic" of the Uyghur textbooks written in Mandarin, and will likely be the first thing that a clerk inside a large Xinjiang bookstore would recommend to you if you ask about Uyghur language materials.
That being said, the newer materials see above are probably a better option if you can obtain them. Like most of the Mandarin textbooks on the language, this one starts with some chapters explaining the basics of Uyghur and then switches to the very standard lesson formats. The book consists of two parts see below for the second part , with the accompanying audio files available for download here.

Have not looked at this one yet, but it seems like a decent general introduction to the language. Intended for linguists, beginner Uyghur learners are advised to look elsewhere, but those interested in the rigorous approach to Uyghur grammar are highly advised to have a look. I have not gone through this book yet, but it appears to be very comprehensive and to be written simultaneously in both Uyghur and Mandarin. A fairly valuable text, given the limited amount of materials dedicated to the Kashgar dialect. The discussion is very professional and intended for linguists, but can be used successfully by those already familiar with Uyghur and with a good knowledge of Mandarin.
A peculiarity of this dialect book is that it does not present the Kashgar dialect with respect to standard Uyghur by pointing out where and how it differs , but rather gives a concise description of the Kashgar dialect as if presenting a new language.
I personally found this to be awkward, since the book is structured just like any standard language book with sections on pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar, syntax and teaches everything with a "in Kashgar Uyghur, this is how All the Uyghur in the book is Latinized and written as it would be spoken in Kashgar which I found quite nice. A very useful booklet of the most frequently used words in the Uyghur language, further divided into three different levels based on the frequency of use.
This is a good way to study vocabulary in a somewhat methodological manner. A coursebook in Mandarin-Uyghur translation. I have not looked through this one, but it looks fairly interesting and comprehensive.
New and notable
A fascinating tome with a collection of samples from different writing systems used by the Uyghur language over the course of history strangely, there appear to be three spelling errors in the Uyghur-version title of the book. I've only flipped through it, but it looks like a lot of fun if you're into history, linguistics, and the like. Definitely not recommended for average learners of the language, though. This seems to be a Russian translation of a beginner course in Uyghur published as part of one of the recent projects for developing materials for minority languages.
It covers the very rudimentary basics, with the majority of the book dedicated to learning the alphabet, and very fundamental grammatical concepts covered in the remainder. Nothing particularly great, but probably worth a look if you want a beginner's text in Russian. The quality of the Russian translation is not superb, but it's comprehensible. There are also cultural points that are discussed at the end of each chapter, although some of these made me scratch my head and wonder about their accuracy e.
