Common Turkic languages
Common Turkic or Shaz Turkic is a taxon in some of the classifications of the Turkic languages which in Lars Johanson proposal contain the following subgroups:. In other classification schemes (A.Samoylovich, N.Baskakov, and others), the breakdown is different.
- Southwestern Common Turkic (Oghuz)
- Northwestern Common Turkic (Kipchak)
- Southeastern Common Turkic (Uyghuric)
- Northeastern Common Turkic (Siberian)
In that classification scheme, Common Turkic is opposed to Oghur Turkic or 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.
