This title provides a guide and reference on Turkish grammar for students providing a basis, not only in verb construction, nouns and the order of elements in a sentence, but also information on asyndetic subordination, punctuation and sentence analysis. This edition reflects the results of the language reform movement which, though not so drastic in its effect on the spoken language, has made anything written before the early Thirties less and less intelligible to subsequent generations; the language has, indeed, changed more in the last 70 years than in the preceding seven hundred. The aim has been to set out every form and construction of pre-and post-reform Turkish that may be encountered in print, as well as non-literary locutions that may be heard in conversation. The material is cross-referenced, and the index shows the suffixes both individually and in combination.
