Turkish is spoken by about fifty million people in Turkey and is the co-official language of Cyprus. Whilst Turkish has a number of properties that are similar to those of other Turkic languages, it has distinct and interesting characteristics which are given full coverage in this book. Jaklin Kornfilt provides a wealth of examples drawn from different levels of vocabulary: contemporary and old, official and colloquial. They are accompanied by a detailed grammatical analysis and English translation.
"More comprehensive, more up-to-date, and more effectively organized than any other description of the language. ... The analyses are up-to-date and insightful, and Kornfilt has done a superb job of bringing clarity to some of the most difficult parts of the language.."
