From this point of view, it is impossible to determine the beginning of the history of the Turkish language and determine its details (Güzel, 2017). In today's scientific research, evidence-based approach is popular. According to the evidence-based approach, a Turkish language history of at least six thousand years can be mentioned based on Chinese sources (Caferoğlu, 1984).
