Even the distant Yakut language of northern Siberia, while somewhat different from other Turkic languages , is still very similar and shares much basic vocabulary and grammar with Anatolian Turkish, for example .
    some say a language of turkisized eastern finns, whereas others say the only remnant of hunnic, whereas nobody knows what hunnic was. The latter say that Chuvash/'hunnic' was an very early altaian split called LIR turkic, much older than common turkic. Finally some argue for a remnant of a separate altaian language. And that are not nearly all views on this issue.
    For my taste the creole language theories has its charm.
