The Karluk (Qarluk) Turkic, Uyghuric Turkic or Southeastern Common Turkic languages, also referred to as the Karluk languages, are one of the six major branches of the Turkic language family.[3] Many Middle Turkic languages were written in these languages and the language of the Kara-Khanid Khanate was known as Turki, Kashgari, or Khaqani. The language of the Chagatai Khanate was the Chagatai language. Karluk Turkic was spoken in the Kara-Khanid Khanate, Chagatai Khanate, Yarkent Khanate, and the Uzbek speaking Khanate of Bukhara, Emirate of Bukhara, Khanate of Khiva, and Kokand Khanate.
