TURK228 - STRUCTURE OF TURKISH

The course would start with a brief introduction to Turkic languages and the place of Turkish in relation to them. This would be followed by information about the Turkic language family's relationship to that of other languages in the context of historical linguistics; the teaching of some of this discipline's principles would be involved. After a brief presentation of the development of Turkish, involving the influence of other languages on it, we would focus on the phonology of Turkish, including phonemes, allophones and vowel harmony. A large part of the course would be devoted to morphology, comprising of suffixes and their function. Finally, syntax, including idiom formation and use would be explored.
