0. Introduction
The aim of the present paper is to give a short account of some thoughts about possible ways of argumentation concerning the external relations of the Turkic languages, in particular the putative language family commonly referred to as ‘Altaic’.
For the sake of brevity and clarity, I will dispense here with reference to the vast literature on the subject and just refer to some previous work in which I have argued for the theoretical claims in more detail and on the basis of fuller empirical data
1. Relatedness versus copying
2. The Altaic hypothesis
3. Code-Copying
4. Turkic language contacts
5. Changes in the morphosyntactic frame
6. Attractiveness
7. The least copiable non-lexemic items
8. Candidats for cognateness
9. Irregularities
10. Conclusio
