This preprint uses the method of statistical processing of lexical lists developed by the authors: transcription of consonant classes and a weighted permutation test. The experiment involves five language families, presumably forming the Altai macrofamily: Turkic, Mongolian, Tunguska, Korean, Japanese. A strong signal was revealed between the so-nuclear Altai taxa: Türkic, Mongolian, Tunguska, which can be explained as a genealogical relationship, partially obscured by contacts. A signal of kinship was revealed in the Japanese-Turkic and Japanese-Tungusic couples (the contact scenario is poorly suited for these couples).
