Redhouse Yeni Turkce-Ingilizce Sozluk (New Redhouse Turkish-English Dictionary).
United Church Board for World Ministries, Istanbul (Turkey). Near East Mission.
The product of nearly 20 years of preparation, this volume is based largely on Sir James Redhouse's publication of 1890, most recently reissued in 1923. The compilers' intention has been to include every word, and as nearly as possible every set phrase or locution, that has been used in standard Turkish as spoken within the geographical area now called Turkey in the last 200 years. While some rare Arabic and Persian loan words have been dropped for new words and phrases, an effort has been made to keep intact the original work. The volume now constitutes both an Ottoman-English and a Turkish-English dictionary. Entries are followed by (1) abbreviations indicating inflected forms, vowel length and stress, derivational source of borrowed words, language style, and area of usage or category; (2) transliteration in Arabic script; and (3) English glosses in isolation and in various contexts. The prefatory and introductory sections of the volume appear in both Turkish and English. (AMM)
