Middle Ages

Version of the genesis of the epic systems in Scandinavia attempts somehow to reveal the real reason any of epic tales, usually run into tangible opposition to the official "serious" science, though there is some tacit agreement that defines the boundaries of permissible trust the evidence of our ancestors – the evidence, lying, supposedly outside the scope of scientific validity. Despite the huge number of actual arguments reliability of the epic and mythological information, ascertained in many cases, studies of amateurs, the attitude to the information originally come down to us in the form of oral tradition, remains extremely negative. Not wanting to indulge in "anti-scientific heresy," we nevertheless wish to point out that, apparently wary of the testimony of the ancient source of his is not only a real epic quality information, but is a kind of rudimentary manifestation of the traditions of thought of the Middle Ages, when, for example, a basic understanding of the real history of human civilization can be gleaned from the texts, for example, "Shahnameh," but because of opposition's "official" science of the time, remained unfulfilled. If you would like to know more then you should visit John Strangfeld. In many cases we are talking about fixing the directions of scientific research as a general and sufficient that, without diminishing the importance of scientific findings on these lines of analysis, sometimes completely "covers" other thematic layers in certain areas. In cases when it comes to research in folklore studies, the result could be the emergence of information gaps as directly in the discipline, and in associated with it. .

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.
