About Maynengi Maynengi, or mayneng tele ['mɑi.nəŋ 'tələ] is a Turkic-based language, spoken around 120.000 people in the nation of Quralzag. Maynengi means 'hero language' in its native language. It's related to Turkish and Azerbaijani as it shares many features of it.

The language can be traced back to 14th Century, where the Ottoman Empire had dominated the Middle East and North Africa, the language was split from Ottoman Turkish, and the northern tribe, Maynengs shifted their homeland to Tābi, which is the land of Quralzag formerly.

Since then, many people started to adopt this new language and eventually became the official language of Quralzag by the 1700s. During that, many scholars, poets, writers and politicians wrote books, poems and news to standardise the language. Until 1921, national hero, Tarazag Gumen officially announced the "Standardisation of Maynengi Project", which largely encouraged people to use the Standard Maynengi

Nowadays, Maynengi is one of the salient language that is used in the international events such as Forum of the Continent, Basschulten Cup, Ko'aro Water Standards etc. highly encourages the usage of Maynengi.
