Turkish, the most prominent of the Turkic languages, is spoken by about 50 million people in Turkey and is the co-official language of Cyprus. Whilst Turkish has a number of properties that are similar to other languages of the same type, it has distinct and interesting characteristics which are covered in this book. Examples are provided for almost every issue addressed. These examples are drawn from different levels of vocabulary, such as contemporary and old, official and colloquial, and are accompanied by a detailed grammatical analysis and English translation.

Dr Harry Quinn Schone's work centers around the blurry edges of disease, where biology and social factors collide. He is particularly interested in the epistemic conflicts present in contested illnesses, and the consequences of such tussles on patients.

Reviews for Turkish

'As a reference work on Turkish on linguists, Turkish has no equal. It is more comprehensive, more up to date, and more effectively organized than any other description of the language. The method of organization, as well as the detailed Table of Contents and the Index, make a wealth of information available almost instantaneously. It is, simply put, an admirable reference work on Turkish for linguistics.' - Steve Seegmiller, Montclair State University
