The hundreds of examples are well chosen with a typical spoken English translation. It is seldom necessary to look up a word while reading an example. The examples are often engaging, requiring a bit of thought to see how the English and Turkish relate. Many examples also indicate the suffixes, which helps overcome a huge stumbling block because of the multiple uses many have.

I would definitely recommend the book, but expect to spend many days working through it for the first time, and then again. It is not your drag along phrase book, or one you should buy a couple weeks before your vacation to Turkey. One person found this helpful.

This just-published reference grammar of Turkish is excellent, but it is not for everyone. It will be most useful to advanced students of Turkish who are comfortable with modern linguistic concepts and terminology.

This is the newest and most comprehensive grammar of Turkish available in English, or for that matter in any language, and contains a wealth of insights into the language for foreign learners. It is a rather dry read, though, and will probably not be of much use to those who are still struggling to assimilate basic Turkish grammar. For beginners, the old "Teach Yourself Turkish" book by Geoffrey Lewis, first published in , is a gem of clear exposition and will likely be the best reference grammar for people first starting out in the language, even though it is arranged as a series of lessons rather than a reference grammar per se.

Later editions of "Teach Yourself Turkish" by other authors will not do the trick; you should search used book sources for the original. It won't bring you to fluency, and some of the vocabulary is a bit outdated, but it will explain the basic grammar more clearly than anything else at the elementary level. For intermediate learners of Turkish, Lewis' larger "Turkish Grammar" is a marvel of clear exposition that's a joy to read; while probably a bit too demanding for beginners, this is a book that everyone student of Turkish should get if they are even half-serious about attaining reasonable ability in the language.

A traditional reference grammar rather than a textbook, it explains almost everything in the grammar with great clarity, using many example sentences. This has been the "standard" Turkish grammar used by foreigners studying Turkish for many years, and it retains its value as the best and clearest exposition of the way the language works. For truly advanced learners of Turkish, "Turkish: A Comprehensive Grammar" is a goldmine of insights, but it is quite heavy going.

The explanations are very explicit, the examples are very up-to-date, and the two co-authors have addressed a good many aspects that are simply not given much coverage in most books. The section on tense-aspect-modality of verbs, in particular, is an outstanding treatment of a very confusing topic. But much of the book will be "above the heads" of readers who do not already have a fair grasp of Turkish, or who are not prepared to wade through some pretty abstruse verbiage to comprehend the points made. This is not a weakness of the book, but rather a reflection of the authors' approach, which is grounded in modern linguistics.

If it has definite status it will have singular meaning, but if it has generic or categorial status it will have transnumeral meaning.

The Lewis books cited above, however, do not read this way, and thus most learners of Turkish should probably have recourse to them before tackling "Turkish: That said, however, I have to say that this is an excellent book, with many insights into details not covered in other grammars, for readers with the background to benefit from it.
