He created a systematization model of the Turkic language family (Baskakov’s classification), and studied Turkic-Russian links in the 10-11th centuries CE. During 64 years of scientific work (1930-1994), Baskakov published all but 640 works including 32 books. The main area of Baskakov’s scientific interests was linguistics, but he furthermore studied folklore and ethnography of the Turkic peoples, and as well as was a musician and composer.
