Comparison of the language planning of the five Central Asian countries after independence

Abstract. Language planning in the countries of Central Asia has become an important research topic. Depending on their own political, economic, social and cultural factors, language planning in different countries has similarities and differences. This article analyzes the language planning practices of the five Central Asian countries in three aspects: status planning, corpus planning, and acquisition planning, and summarizes the impact of planning. The five countries of Central Asia ensured the status of the state language, limited the Russian language, and to varying degrees took into account the development of minority and foreign languages. Language planning reflects the interests of different countries, and learning a language is equivalent to studying its political relations and cultural value, which helps to comprehensively understand the linguistic landscape of the countries of Central Asia.

Keywords: Central Asia, language planning, status planning, corpus planning, acquisition planning
