Abstract:

"Towards Pre-Proto-Turkic". Prof. Dr. Juha Janhunen (Helsingfors universitet)

The lecture will deal with the possibilities of approaching the earliest stages of the Turkic language, which may be termed Pre-Proto-Turkic. Information on Pre-Proto-Turkic can be obtained by the traditional comparative method, which involves both internal (intra-Turkic) and external (extra-Turkic) comparisons. Additionally, the protolanguage can be analysed with the method of internal reconstruction. The lecture will focus on selected details of historical phonology.
