Book Information

   

Title: Arabic Grammars of Turkic
Subtitle: The Arabic Linguistic Model Applied to Foreign Languages & Translation of ’Abū ḥayyān Al-’Andalusī's Kitāb al-’Idrāk li-Lisān al-’Atrāk
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=8722
Series Title: Studies in Semitic Languages and Linguistics
Description:

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 Kitāb al-’Idrāk Li-Lisān
al-’Atrāk, a grammar of Mamlūk Qipčaq Turkic, written by the renowned
14th-century grammarian ’Abū ḥayyān Al-’Andalusī. The translation gives an
excellent insight in Arabic linguistic reasoning applied to Turkic.
