 Crimean Tatar-Russian as a Reflection of Crimean Tatar National Identity
Practically since their deportation from Crimea in 1944, the Crimean Tatars' (CT) national movement has been the key social phenomenon in the lives of CT. One of the foremost reasons this small ethnic group has withstood and continues to withstand extreme economic and political hardship is the strength of the CT family structure.
Language is at the core of national identity, and it is a commonly held idea among CT that language is at the core of their ethnicity.
Where language is mentioned in a contemporary context, it is to call for the development of CT-language schools, or to note or bemoan the widespread use of R among the younger CT due to their R-language education, but it has not described CT-R or discussed its significance.
