While the Arabic, Persian, Greek and Slavic elements in Turkish have received monographic treatment, the Armenian elements have not up to now been treated comprehensively. The present survey aims to fill this gap in Turcological studies. Building on previous work by Adjarian and others, and making full use of lexicographic tools for both languages, the author has established a corpus of 800 Armenian loanwords in Turkish (defining “Turkish” as the dialect continuum stretching from the Balkans to Azerbaijan). Several hundred more words, uncertain or doubtful for various reasons, are assigned to appendices. The introduction contains analyses of the loan vocabulary along geographical, historical, phonological, and topical lines. A bibliography, a comprehensive index, and a note on Turkish loanwords in Armenian complete the work.
