Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This is the newest, the most up-to-date and one of the most comprehensive Turkish reference grammers on the market today.' - Middle East Studies Association

'This is a magnificent and immense work of scholarship, which provides us with the best analytical description (in English) of the contemporary Turkish of Turkey that we are likely to see for many years ... The authors are to be congratulated on their boldness and success in adapting familiar grammatical terminology ... to suit the characteristics of Turkish.' – Turkish Aread Studies Review

'Refreshingly, this highly academic work provides an unpretentious user-friendly glossary of grammatical terms ... For serious students and researchers of Turkish and linguistics, this book is a veritable bible of descriptive grammar grafted on to years of teaching experience to produce a must-have reference tool.' – The Times Higher Educational Supplement
