Turkic Group

However, one of the most famous authors of the X century – Ibn Fadlan in his accounts of the Turkic peoples – right indicates: '… we saw one (group) worship snakes (another) group worships a fish (third) group worships cranes'. Fish present in the title of At least two other well-known Turkic peoples. The Uighurs – where the fish are and where their territory! – But ethnonym 'Uighur' absolutely clear echoes the name of 'aygyr' (pike, shark) – because if the natural evolutionary reduction ryadnosti vowels for the Turkic languages understood as a reduction in articulating tension, 'Uighur' and 'aygyr' merely phonetic variants of a single word. Traditionally, 'Polovets' produce from the Slavic 'sex', ie – yellow. The logic of commentators in this case is clear – because this nation is known by that name only Slavic authors, and for the rest of the world portrayed in 'Cumans' and 'Kipchaks', therefore, be interpreted as a general in ekzoetnonima opposed to total equity, etc. However, once O. Suleimenov convincingly showed that 'Kipchak' – just a generic or tribal name, meaning literally, 'two knives.

" If 'eki bichak' – the name of tribal group, then why not assume that the Slavs of Kievan Rus, also did not try to come up with their common name Kumans, and just took advantage of a self-reference? '… Moved Out Nyurgun Botur the ocean shore and saw Cyrus Palyh'. Yakut epic pronunciation Turkic 'balyk' may shed light on ethnonym 'Polovets'. Judging by the text 'Code Kumanikus', the language is almost identical to the clip-clopping dialect of modern Karachay-Balkar language.
