The article analyzes the language of ancient Turkic historical monuments – «Kultegin», «Tonykok», «Bilge kagan», etc., the text of which was the richest in literary and artistic terms. The language of these monuments is a sample of the literary language of that era, ie. it was understandable for Oguz, Kipchaks, Argus, Chigil, and the Kirghiz and other tribes. The vocabulary, word combinations, ways of achieving artistic expressiveness point to this commonality. In turn, this indicates that the ancient Turkic people, speaking the same literary language, used the same written language. The monolithic of language of the Kazakh people did not appear out of nowhere, and the Kazakh language itself, is ancient as the written and verbal traditions of the Turkic ethnos. The article analyzes the language, the meaning, emotional and artistic imagery of written monuments, texts of which the modern Turks can understand without translation.
