POPPE, NICHOLAS
THIS MANUAL PRESENTS A COMPREHENSIVE GRAMMAR OF TATAR, ONE OF THE TURKIC LANGUAGES BELONGING TO THE NORTH-WESTERN (KIPCHAK) BRANCH. IT IS SPOKEN BY NEARLY FIVE MILLION PEOPLE IN THE AUTONOMOUS TATAR SOVIET REPUBLIC OF THE USSR. A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE LANGUAGE AND ITS MAIN DIALECTS IS GIVEN IN THE INTRODUCTION, WHICH ALSO INCLUDES A SELECTED LIST OF REFERENCE BOOKS AND TEXTS IN TATAR. PART ONE OF THE MANUAL IS COMPRISED OF SECTIONS DEALING WITH PHONOLOGY, INFLECTION, FORM AND FUNCTION CLASSES, WORD FORMATION, PHRASE STRUCTURE AND CLASS STRUCTURE. PART TWO CONTAINS A NUMBER OF ORIGINAL TEXTS FROM TATAR HIGH SCHOOL MANUALS INTENDED FOR READING AND TRANSLATION. WRITTEN IN THE CYRILLIC SCRIPT, THEY ARE CHARACTERISTIC OF SOVIET LITERATURE. PART THREE IS A TATAR-ENGLISH GLOSSARY. SPECIAL ATTENTION IS GIVEN TO THE TRANSLITERATION AND CORRESPONDENCES BETWEEN CYRILLIC AND ENGLISH ORTHOGRAPHY. KNOWLEDGE OF TURKISH, WHILE NOT ESSENTIAL, IS HELPFUL TO THE STUDENT OF TATAR. A KNOWLEDGE OF LINGUISTICS IS ASSUMED.
