Celtic Language as a Primary Branch of Ancient Japhetic or Turanian Language

  •  Aygun Kosayeva    


This article reports on a study of words affinity in Irish, Azerbaijani and other Turkic languages. In spite of
Irishmen’s migration from territory of ancient Azerbaijan to Asia Minor and further to the British Isles, they could
preserve not only culture, but also their language in a new motherland. The present paper discloses semantic
similarities and etymology of several words in Irish, Gaelic, Welsh and other Turkic languages. Celtic language
was a primary branch of ancient Japhetic or Turanian language, because the meaning of several words in Celtic and
Turkic languages proves a kinship between Celts and Turkic nations.
