The Turkic languages are spoken today in a vast geographical area from the Balkans to the Arctic Ocean and from South Iran to China. There are currently twenty languages in the group, the most important being Turkish.
This is the first reference book to bring together detailed discussions of the historical development and specialized linguistic structures and features of this vast language family. Each chapter contains modern linguistic analysis with traditional historical linguistics, allowing for easy typological comparison of the language.
