    Geoffrey Lewis' TURKISH GRAMMAR, first published by Oxford in 1967 with a second edition in 2000, is *the* reference grammar of Turkish for speakers of English. Besides the usual paradigms of substantive declension and verb conjugation, it covers a host of other concepts that present a challenge to the foreign learner. The chapter on word formation is excellent, and understanding word formation is vital after nearly a century of commonly deriving new lexemes from pre-existing Turkic roots. The c Geoffrey Lewis' TURKISH GRAMMAR, first published by Oxford in 1967 with a second edition in 2000, is *the* reference grammar of Turkish for speakers of English. Besides the usual paradigms of substantive declension and verb conjugation, it covers a host of other concepts that present a challenge to the foreign learner. The chapter on word formation is excellent, and understanding word formation is vital after nearly a century of commonly deriving new lexemes from pre-existing Turkic roots. The chapter on number, case and apposition cover matters which prove very difficult for English speakers to tackle, things like agreement of plural nouns and verbs (or lack thereoff) and when to use izafet linking (and when not). A very nice extra is a chapter which gives a word-by-word demonstration of how one sets about translating a complicated sentence. Would that more grammars include such material. The second edition of the book gives a much vaster view of the impact of language reform on contemporary Turkish, much of which is distilled from the research which led to Lewis' great monograph of 1999: THE TURKISH LANGUAGE REFORM: A Catastrophic Success. It's a pity that Oxford set this second edition in a sans serif typeface, which is rather hard on the eyes. Basically, if you study Turkish, you need this book. Yes, it's an academic book and goes for a high sum, but you'd be wise to make the investment.

    It's just a beautiful book, a joy to read, to pick up at any time. And its depth, the reader is constantly in the presence of a true authority. It's just a beautiful book, a joy to read, to pick up at any time. And its depth, the reader is constantly in the presence of a true authority.
