Dear All

I am currently doing some research on Ottoman Turkish. I am having trouble locating much written examples dating from the early Ottoman years , 1299....onwards. Also I was wondering if anyone can tell me where to find information on the phonology of early Ottoman Turkish. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi Senin,

I don't have specialized knowledge on the subject, and I'm not sure if this site would give you the sort of help needed, but may be worth giving a try: http://www.osmanli.org.tr/ It gives the impression of a site with popular stuff though, despite the pompous name, but you can get to other material through the links given.

I'm sure there are people among us who can provide you with much more useful help, though.


Good luck,
Özden

Ottoman site Mar 23, 2005

Actually, there are no abundant resources on Ottoman Turkish. Its name is even controversial. Although it was one of the primary courses in our education, the foreign linguists and Turcologists are much more experienced and specialised in that, particularly in German and Russia. Ex-department head of my ex-university, Gunay Kut, is one of the most crucial persons on this area and she has many articles published in related magazines in USA and worldwide, though she is older than my grandma. Pls refer to the international linguist sites for more details

Thanks Mar 26, 2005

Thanks to Özden and Serkan for their replies. The information you provided was great but I am going to have to look else where for information and resources concerning this particular topic.
I hope I can find them somewhere.

A couple of web resource Mar 26, 2005

Hi senin,

H-Turk can be a good resource for you. You may send an e-mail moderator or google it than you may subscribe or do/act as you wish!
http://www.h-net.org/~turk/

Once you subcribed you can pass a question or a request to network of Turkish studies or related people around the world. I am sure that you will receive enough number of or enough amount of information if once you send your request.

Another web site is www.ottomanist.org Although it is a fairly new site, yet moderator is fast in responding!

And definately Ottoman Archives of Republic of Turkey is the greatest source!

Although some of the could still be classified, British Resources are also suggested to consider.

These are just a few of the resources.

Good luck!

N. Yiğit

This book might be of some help in terms of giving a brief summary of translated Ottoman texts, tone, style,etc. not least a new perspective on approach to translation techniques.
