Throughout the history Kipchaks have lived on a very wide geography but they can’t have created political alliance. So they can’t have created a central state. The reason of this is that they have lived on a wide geography and always have immigrated. As a result of migrations, the majority of Kipchaks have dissappered by getting into Christian society in Bulgaria, Romania, Russia, Georgia and especially Hungary of which in history Kipchaks did war. Oghuz Turkish have became writing language at 13th century. Before 13th century is a indeterminate period. Before Oghuz Turkish became writing language also have affected other wrinting languages. In works which study from Old Turkish Period are encountered elements that belong to Oghuz Turkish. There is first information abouth Historical Kipchak Turkish that create basis of modern Kipchak Dialect in Diwan Lughat at-Turk by Mahmud ibn Hussayn ibn Muhammed al-Kashgari. This book includes extensively informations abouth Oghuzs and Kipchaks. The reason of this is that they have very crowded population and have influenced on history.
