There was once a popular joke in the mainland, saying, “The end of the universe is Tieling in Northeast China.” But now Northeast China has really made a “human event”. It is certainly not the end of the universe, but it may be the source of the language spoken by hundreds of millions of people! In other words, the ancestors of those people are all in the northeast.
A study combining linguistic, genetic and archaeological evidence found that languages of the same language family including modern Japanese, Korean, Turkish, and Mongolian, as well as the people who speak these languages, all originated from living in northeastern China about 9,000 years ago Ancient farmers who planted millet.
The research, jointly published by researchers from the United Kingdom, China, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea, Russia, the Netherlands, and the United States, was published in the journal Nature on November 10.
The five groups that formed the Pan-Eurasian language family-Japanese, Korean, Mongolian, Tungusic (a branch of the northern branch of the Mongolian race, mainly distributed in Siberia and Manchuria) and the origin and common degree of Turkic people, It has long been an area of debate among scholars. The paper team stated that recent research “has shown reliable core evidence” supporting the theory that they originated from a common ancestor.
