This is silly, OP. Of course all those languages listed have the same word for oil/butter/fat; they're all Turkic. Try again.

If you want to know more read my books in English and in Russian languages
THE BRITISH ARE DESCENDANTS OF THE BASHKIRS by Radik Safin (Paperback) - Lulu
Not necessarily. Words for mother and father have similarities throughout the world, because babies' first words, the first syllables they're capable of pronouncing, tend to be "ma" sounds and "ba" or "pa" sounds. "Father" in bantu languages is also "baba", but that doesn't mean that Bantu is part of the Nostratic language family.

Get a grip, OP.

Are you Russian?
You're missing the fundamental principles in the theory you're espousing. You have to be able to distinguish loan words (naturally, Russian was inundated with Mongol vocab, for obvious reasons) vs. a genuine linguistic sub-stratum. Have you even had in-depth coursework in linguistics, or are you quoting from a book or newspaper articles, or from a popular series of lectures at your local university in Bashkiria? You didn't respond to my post like a linguist would; rather, you responded like a dogmatist.

Are you Russian?
No, that's not what the Nostratic language family theory is. It proposes a macrofamily (one among several in the world) that unifies many, not all, languages in Eurasia. (Sinitic languages (Chinese-related), Austronesian, and SE Asian languages aren't included.) Some proponents of the theory include North African and Arabian Peninsula languages. Sub-Saharan Africa isn't included, Australian aboriginal languages and Pacific Islander and New Guinea languages aren't included, nor are languages indigenous to the Americas.

The whole concept of macro-families is controversial, which is not to say that it's entirely without merit. But linguists say that even Sergei Starostin, who was one of the main proponents of the theory, tended to confuse loanwords with vocabulary that evolved from a common root.
