WHAT DOES TOCHARIAN A MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Tocharian A

Tocharian languages

Tocharian or Tokharian is an extinct branch of the Indo-European language family, formerly spoken by Tocharian peoples in oases on the northern edge of the Tarim Basin. Documents dating from the 6th to the 8th century AD record two closely related languages, called Tocharian A and Tocharian B. The subject matter of the texts suggests that Tocharian A was more archaic and used as a Buddhist liturgical language, while Tocharian B was more actively spoken in the entire area from Turfan in the east to Tumshuq in the west. A body of loanwords and names found in Prakrit documents have been dubbed Tocharian C. These languages became extinct after Turkic Uyghur tribes expanded into the Tarim Basin in the 9th century AD. The term "Tocharian" is sometimes referred to as a misnomer for Old Turkic twγry/twghry, read as toxrï.
