The volume Exploring the Diversity of Turkic Languages is a collection of eight chapters, each presenting research in the field of Turkic linguistics.
Within the volume the papers are divided into two sections: papers reporting on original research and papers presenting case studies. Each chapter focuses on a specific aspect of Turkic languages and linguistics, covering phonology, morphology and syntax, semantics as well as language contact phenomena of different modern Turkic languages. These include Turkish, Turkmen, modern Azerbaijani, Kazakh, Kyrgyz, Uyghur, Sakha (Yakut), Rhodian Turkish, Old Turkic in Manichaean religious texts, historical Turkic as the literary Eastern Turkic, Chulym as an extremely endangered Siberian Turkic variety.
