Proponents of the idea carry that Turkish is a part of the Altaic relations, and that Turkish therefore exists in parallel with Mongolic and Tungusic-Manchu. regardless of the fact of this concept, Gerard Clauson's erudite and vigorously expressed perspectives, established as they have been on a amazing wisdom of the lexicon of the Altaic languages and his amazing paintings within the box of Turkish lexicography, maintains to command admire and deserve awareness.

Example text

The Huns also took this opportunity to re-establish their suzerainty over the Wu-huan and Hsien-pei. By the middle of the first century, however, the situation had changed again. China under the Latter Han dynasty regained its strength, and as a result of internal discord the Huns again split into Northern and Southern Kingdoms, the latter ruling Inner Mongolia under Chinese suzerainty, the former Outer Mongolia and some adjacent areas as an independent state. The two were almost continuously in a state of mutual hostility and the Wu-huan and Hsien-pei took advantage of this to throw off the Hunnish yoke.

520 onwards civil war began to break out between various members of the royal family and the Juan-juan began to lose control. They finally collapsed in the middle of the sixth century. At about that date a Turkish tribe whom the Byzantine authorities called “Avar” appeared in eastern Europe. Chavannes op. cit. made out a plausible case for the theory that these Avar were Juanjuan who had fled to the west, but positive proof is still lacking and doubt has since been expressed about the validity of some of Chavannes’ evidence.

Plus or minus one or two centuries, are indisputably of Chinese design, if not actually of Chinese manufacture, and these must have crossed the steppes from the east. C. there must have been economic and cultural exchanges to and fro across the steppes, and this must surely mean that the nomadic steppe peoples acted as middlemen. As it was the Huns that in the last few centuries before the Christian era were the inhabitants of those parts of the steppes which were immediately adjacent to China it seems reasonable to suggest that the earlier inhabitants of this part of the steppes were also Huns.
