This paper presents arguments for a synthesis of two frameworks proposed for defining cross-linguistic types of clause-linking strategies. One framework was introduced by Johanson in 1993 and developed in later works (e.g. 1996). The other one is a more recent general typological framework put forward by Dixon & Aikhenvald (eds.) 2009. None of these models can be accounted for in any detail in this paper. Just very brief summaries of the main ideas will be given here. The aim is to illustrate that both syntactic and semantic criteria are needed in order to account for the types of clause linking strategies in Turkic. Syntactic properties cannot be derived from semantic features or vice versa. The syntactic distinction between main and non-main clauses is not sufficient in order to describe clause linking strategies. Cross-linguistic typological classifications based on pure semantic criteria are not satisfactory.
