The Urheimat of the Nostratic Languages

The Relationship of the Altaic and Turkic languages. Origin and development.


To the theme of the Nostratic languages

            This languages macrofamily includes the Altai, Urals, Dravidian, Indo-European, Kartvelian, the Semito-Hamitic (also known as Afro-Asiatic) languages but maybe also other language families. There is no any consensus among scientists about the reality of the existence of this superfamily but the arguments of the opponents of its existence are too categorical, without sufficient justification. The position of "this can not be," in general, is very vulnerable because it is required to prove the falsity or randomness of all the arguments "for", while for the approval of the truth of any proposition is sufficient only one irrefutable argument. Many linguists do not realize that a number of evidence with a small probability, being taken together, greatly increases the likelihood of an event which they support. For example, take one of the objections of B.A Serebrennikov against kinship of Nostratic languages who categorically asserted that it "has not been proven conclusively." Speaking of false etymologies of V.M Illich-Svitych, he believes some of them are based on a comparison of onomatopoeic words. For example, he takes among other Nostratic word * bura "to drill" which has matches Fin. pura "a drill, bit", Lat. forare "to drill", O.H.G. borōn "to drill", Accad. bura "a well" (SEREBRENNIKOV B.A., 1982, 59). The imitation of the sound of the drill, of course, is looked through, but it could be expressed not only by the sounds bur/bor/pur/for. The sound of the drill can be expressed by a variety of other sounds - der, gor, mar, lur, but they were not chosen to imitate, but namely the above sounds which are similar in important features, and it can say with a certain probability about the Nostratic origin of the words meaning "drilling".
To the theme of the expansion of the Turks in Central Europe

            The problem of the genesis of the Turkic languages​​ is closely related to the theme of Nostratic languages. Their cognate relations were also determined using the graphic-analytical. Localization of places of the arising of Turkic languages let determining ethnicity of the creators of Corded and battle-axes culture and coming close to solving the Scythian and Sarmatian problems. A certain part of the evidence of this are the materials that can be found on the links below. Basically, this material is connected with Proto-Turkic tribe that left their Urheimat and moved to the right bank of the Dnieper, and then populated the large expanse of East-Central Europe.
