Khorasani Turkic

Notes

  • It is unclear whether Khorasani Turkic should be considered one, two, three or five varieties. Doerfer and Hesche (1993) treat it as having five varieties: Northwest, Southwest, Southeast, Northeast, and North. This treatment is followed here.
  • In other works, Doerfer breaks Khorasani Turkic into three groups: Central Oghuz (Southwest), Southern Oghuz (Northwest, Southwest), and East Oghuz (North, Northeast). Other works simply have a north-south division based on whether copulas employ forms resembling possessives (south) or forms resembling pronouns (north).
