The book contains a selection of articles on areal, historical and typological aspects of the South Siberian Turkic language group, written by linguists from Germany, the Netherlands, Russia, Turkey and the United States. Beside dealing with South Siberian Turkic languages (Altay Turkic, Tuvan, Shor, Khakas), the volume also presents papers on Tuvan varieties spoken in Mongolia and China and on Yellow Uyghur, a language spoken in the Qīnghăi-Gānsù region of China which appears to be genetically close to South Siberian Turkic. Kazakh, a contact language to several of these idioms, is also discussed. The papers cover the typology of the sound, morphological and syntactic systems as well as the areal features and the historical development of these languages.
