6 x 9
Geoffrey Lewis is honoured in this collection of essays on topics relating to Turkish language and literature. Lewis, who wrote the classic Teach Yourself Turkish and The Turkish Language Reform: a Catastrophic Success, is perhaps best known for his Turkish Grammar. Written in 1967 and reissued some thirty years later, Turkish Grammar is the standard reference for any student of the Turkish language. Lewis’s scholarly career also saw him produce numerous works based on Ottoman materials. Under the editorship of Çigdem Balim-Harding, more than two dozen Ottomanists and Turcologists have written essays in recognition of Lewis’s contribution to the field of Turkish studies.
