Concise comments please. Personally I think the comments field is WAY 
too long and should be edited. It is too encyclopaedic. On the other 
hand we could leave it alone and get this registered.

Comments: Popularized and widely used in the Soviet Union in the 1930s
   among Turkic languages as part of USSR-wide policy of introducing
   Latin-based alphabets in Turkic regions, on the basis of representing
   equivalent phonemes in a unified fashion. Other names: (a) New (as of
   1930s) Turkic Alphabet; (b) Birlәşdirilmiş Jeni
   (1930larda) Türk Әlifbasь (Unified New (as of 1930s)
   Turk(ic) Alphabet); (c) Unified Turkic Latin Alphabet; (d)
   Jaŋalif (in Qazan Tatar: abbreviation of "New Alphabet").
   Mainly meant to be used in historical, and academic discourse, and
   possibly graphics-based republications of 1930s publications.
