Common Turkic languages
Common Turkic or Shaz Turkic is a taxon in some classifications of the Turkic languages that includes all of them except the Oghur languages. Lars Johanson's proposal contains the following subgroups:
- Southwestern Common Turkic (Oghuz)
- Northwestern Common Turkic (Kipchak)
- Southeastern Common Turkic (Karluk)
- Northeastern Common Turkic (Siberian)
|Central Asia, Siberia, Turkey and Azerbaijan|
In that classification scheme, Common Turkic is opposed to Oghur Turkic (Lir-Turkic). The Common Turkic languages are characterized by sound correspondences such as Common Turkic š versus Oghuric l and Common Turkic z versus Oghuric r.
