Table Of Contents[edit | edit source]

Welcome to the Proto Turkic page! Here we will assist Wikibooks, together with Wiktionary, to consider the content of the reconstructed language, which is supposed to have been spoken between 500 BCE and 100 AD. Such a language was spoken in Mongolia before the Turks' Oghur tribe migrated to the west, somewhere north of the Black Sea! Proto-Turkic language, which we can call a kind of Xiongnu language, is the ancestor of all Turkic languages today.
