Bukhori

I haven't seen a suggestion of Bukhori, a Jewish language.

Bukhori (bokharian) is spoken by many Jews in New York. I have friends who speak it fluently, it's a bit similar to Russian and other such languages (like Uzbek, Tajik...). Bokharian is very popular among many schools that I've been to, besides Yiddish and English.

Hi, I've listed this in the [GUIDE] I would like a new course: What should I do?.

I listed it as "Bukharic, Bukhori, Bukhari, Bukharian" because the ISO 639-3 code lists it as Bukharic but Wikipedia list the other three in that order.

Thanks to DragonPolyglot for letting me know about it :)

i am bukharian and would love to have a course like this. learning bukhori is extremely hard because there are basically no ways to learn it online. the closest thing to learning bukhori online is tajik

I've honestly never heard of it.

It seems to be considered a dialect of Tajik (which is considered a veriety of Persian), according to Wikipedia. But it's different enough (in mostly script) to be it's own langauge, much like Urdu-Hindi or German-Yiddish. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bukhori_dialect
