Many Turkic languages display non-canonical modal clause junction patterns that seem to be the result of long and intense contact with Indo-European languages. Their basic structure was not, however, alien to Turkic. Preexisting native combinational patterns made the languages in question receptive to Indo-European influence. The patterns gained ground and became less marked as a result of frequential copying.
