Abstract: The problem of the Ural-Altai languages typology has been for a long time and is still of interest for the linguists. The complex experimental-phonetic research of the vocalic and consonantal systems of the Siberian languages by using of the advanced instrumental techniques allowed clarifying the problem of the sound systems classification. The results of the experimental research of the Buryat, Mongol and some Turkic languages practically support the existence of the central vowel row that was theoretically predicted by L.V. Scherba. Objective data on Turkish (the Eastern dialect, Kazakhstan), Mongol and some other language vocalisms witness the necessity of distinguishing one more vowel row beside central namely, central-back which has all six degrees of rise. There have been added some corrections into articulatory classification of consonants: there have been singled out additional consonant classes, specified groups of compound units, introduced obligatory characteristic of sounds in accordance with the passive organs of speech.
