Abstract [en]

 This chapter represents the whole Northern Eurasian area, where Turkic languages are spoken in close contact with other Transeurasian languages, Mongolic and Tungusic. These three language families share signifi cant grammaticalization strategies and typological characteristics with each other as well as with Koreanic and Japonic. First, the distribution, classification, and some basic typological features of Turkic languages is briefly presented in comparison to other Transeurasian languages. The main focus will be on typically non-European grammaticalization processes that are representative for the whole family and recurring throughout the known history of Turkic. A detailed account of different grammaticalization strategies of so-called converb forms  complements the treatment of similar processes in other Transeurasian languages that are otherwise less elaborated in this volume. This account will highlight grammaticalized categories of actional modification and viewpoint aspect typical of Turkic. Finally, some theoretically interesting issues such as the lack of formal marking resulting in systematic ambiguity is addressed.
