Arabic Grammars of Turkic: The Arabic Linguistic Model Applied to Foreign Languages & Translation of ʼAbū Ḥayyān Al-ʼAndalusī's Kitāb Al-ʼidrāk Li-lisān Al-ʼAtrāk
This volume consists of two parts. The first is a detailed study of grammars of Turkic written by Arab grammarians (11th-17th century AD), covering internal structure, phonetics, morphonology and syntax. It contains numerous quotations from both little-cited edited texts and unknown manuscripts. The analyses contribute to the study of the application of linguistic models to 'foreign' languages, and the Arabic model in particular. The second part is an English translation of Kit?b al-'Idr?k Li-Lis?n al-'Atr?k, a grammar of Maml?k Qip?aq Turkic, written by the renowned 14th-century grammarian 'Ab? ?ayy?n Al-'Andalus?. The translation gives an excellent insight in Arabic linguistic reasoning applied to Turkic.
