@Galandar:
My question is a little bit off topic:
Why do you use anglicised scripts for the names of Azerbaijani towns, even for small villages that don't have common English names.
I noticed that fact very often not only in your posts but at posts of different Azerbaijanis.
Is it a habit rooted in Soviet times because Russians never respected languages of other nations and russified even personal names?
Modern Azerbaijani script is readable for all people who are able to read Latin script. Only ə is unusual for Europeans. But that's no problem. You can use it like Icelanders use instead of th. It is part of Azerbaijani language so we have to respect it.
Or if you wanna you can write instead.
But kh instead of x and so on is not necessary!
By the way: It is much easier for foreigners if you use correct scripts because they are found on maps and road signs as well.
Best wishes,
Hanno

Dear Hanno,

First of all thanks a lot for an important notice.

The way we write depends on the language and the alphabet we use. For instance I always try to use the correct letters for the names of Azerbaijani cities e.g. Bakı, Lənkəran, Naxıvan, Xandəndi... In case I use the usual English keyboard without ə, , , ğ... I would prefer to write the same names as Baki, Lankaran, Naxcivan, Xankendi...

When it comes to English I have to respect the correct writing in it. In this case the correct way of writing of names of the above-mentioned cities is Baku, Lankaran, Nakhchivan, Khankendi...

If you have any more questions please feel free to ask

WB promises to build another 300 km of roads for Azerbaijan for several years

The World Bank prepares to double the volume of construction and reconstruction of highways in Azerbaijan.

WB country representative Joseph Owen says that starting from 2001 Azerbaijan has improved A-roads with the total length of 300 km thanks to Bank’s loans.

"In the next few years the WB will finance projects to improve roads in Azerbaijan with length of another 300 km," Mr. Owen said.

Since 1992, when Azerbaijan became a WB member, the Bank has approved granting of the loans for Azerbaijan in the total amount of $2.9 billion for 43 projects.

"Today, the current WB portfolio in the country is $2.3 billion for 20 active projects," he emphasized.

Dear Galandar,
thank you very much for your answer.
I think there is a difference between "Baku" and "Nakhchivan".
"Baku" is an exonyme like "Munich" for Mnchen. But the reason that the city of Naxıvan still is often written "Nakhchivan" is that it was the old transcription from Cyrillic script. Nobody would ever write the Turkish city of orum as "Chorum" in English.
Such things you only find at city names in former Soviet countries.
It is ok if you respect English language. But you could clarify English speakers that they have to respect Azerbaijani language at the same grade they do with Turkish language.
Best wishes,
Hanno
