WHAT DOES URAL-ALTAIC MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Ural–Altaic languages

Ural–Altaic, also Uralo-Altaic or Uraltaic, is an obsolete language-family proposal uniting the Uralic and Altaic languages. Originally suggested in the 19th century, the hypothesis enjoyed wide acceptance among linguists into the mid 20th century. Since the 1960s, it has been controversial and rejected. From the 1990s, interest in a relationship between the Uralic and Altaic families has been revived in the context of the Eurasiatic hypothesis. Bomhard treats Uralic, Altaic and Indo-European as Eurasiatic daughter groups on equal footing.
