  • Turkish language is obviously Altaic. Note that Japanese and Korean are not quite Altaic, it's very debatable, those east Asian languages are significantly different.

    • Yes. Im studying to Altaistic at university. According to the new article Korean was accepted. The Japanese generally included at the position. Ainu language sometimes included.
      I think Turkish sounds like mix of Japanese+Swedish+Hungarian.

    • I think Turkish doesn't sound like guttural.

    • Well, not as much as Arabic, but maybe a little bit, just some dialects, with strange accents... in several Turkish tv shows, mostly spoken by people from rural regions.

  • Uzbek, Kazakh.
