The dialectological expedition in Central Asia in November, 2000, obtained linguistic as well as new folkloric and ethnographic material. Along with new photographic material, a two-hour video film about the Arabs of Central Asia was made for the first time in Arabic-speaking kishlaks of Bukhara and Kashkadarya, the documentary material showing their life, language, traditions and daily round, which will become more valuable in due course. As a result of the expedition, the fact of preservation of Arabic speech in the Kishlaks Shohanbeg andChagdare, Bukhara region, was established, which was noted by Acad. G. Tsereteli in the 1930s. A part of the population of the third kishlak – Labrud – speaks Arabic, but those are Arabs migrated from Gogari to Labrud. As regards the Arabs of Shohanbeg and Chagdare, they have inhabited these Kishlaks for a long period of time. As a result of the expeditions conducted in Bukhara region in the 1930s, the attention was focused on the Kishlaks Jogari and Arab Hone. It was considered at that time that full dialectological material could be obtained in these two Kishlaks. NowadaysShohanbeg, Chagdare and, to a certain extent, Labrud can be added to these Kishlaks. The Arabic speech of Chagdare is largely influenced by the Tajik language. There are two quarters here: 1. Jofa Rabot (the quarter of Arabs) and Tojikon (the quarter of Tajiks). The population of the quarter of Jofa Rabot speaks mainly Arabic. Noteworthly material is found here from the viewpoint of the contacts of the Semitic and Indo-European languages, for the influence of Tajiki on the Arabic dialect is great. Arabic place-names in Bukhara and Samarqand regions are basically linked to the term ‘arab(arabon, arab saroi, arab rabot, raboti arab etc.). Whereas place-names in Kashkadarya region are based on the names of Arabic tribes: naukad quraish, kahlai, tazi. This attests to the earlier wave of Arab migration to Kashkadarya region compared with Bukharan.
