The Pan-Turkic Latin orthography developed out of the modern Turkish
orthography and Latin alphabets in use in the Soviet Turkic republics in
the 1920s. Most of the latter alphabets were formalised after 1923, but
some languages were already using Latin alongside Arabic earlier than that.
For example, the Azeri communist newspaper _Yeni Yol_ used Latin
exclusively from 1920.
