Title: A Dictionary of Turkish Verbs
Subtitle: In Context and By Theme
Written By: Ralph Jaeckel
Description:

One of the keys to learning the Turkish language is to understand the
importance and function of the verb. The stem of the verb, together with
various suffixes of mode, tense, person, along with a subject and/or
object, may be the equivalent of an entire English sentence. A Dictionary
of Turkish Verbs is an aid to both the beginning and more advanced student
of the language by providing approximately 1,000 verbs in context as they
appear in up-to-date colloquial Turkish phrases and sentences, or short
dialogues in translation.

Contrasting English and Turkish ways of expression, this multipurpose
dictionary also helps the English speaker avoid the most common errors—with
most verbs cross-referenced to related verbs, synonyms, or antonyms, and to
the broader themes or categories of meaning to which they belong. Includes
an English–Turkish index and a thesaurus section (using Roget's categories)
where verbs of related meaning appear together and a short reference list
of verb-forming suffixes. For students at any stage of learning the Turkish
language, or for the self-motivated traveler, this unique dictionary will
help open the door to greater understanding in an increasingly important
area of the world.
