The linguistic conservatism of Chagatai during this period can be attributed in part to the towering prestige of Nava'i, and the desire of writers to imitate his style and vocabulary.
The supplanting of Chagatai by daughter languages parallels, in fact, the replacement of Latin by the modern Romance languages.
The Uzbek people have adopted Nava'i as their national poet, and in the Soviet Union Chagatai is commonly referred to as "Old Uzbek." In 1966, which marked the 525th anniversary of Nava'i's birth, a year of official and deeply felt celebration took place in Uzbekistan.

 [No title]
The Krymchak language was called Chagatai on very rare occasions, and I suspect the use of this term was greatly influenced by a second literary tradition.
A Karaite, R. Beim, already in 1858, allegedly claimed that the Karaites spoke the Chagatai language relative to the Median [sic!] even before Tatar had penetrated into the Crimea.[6] An unexpected allegation that the Krymchaks themselves call their language 'Chagatai,' made by Filonenko in his article published in 1972,[7] seems to be baseless.
It is less clear, however, whether a change in languages was accompanied by corresponding superstratum processes; for example, whether, and to what extent, the Turkish speaking Jews of Istanbul contributed to the ethnic core of the Krymchaks.
