Turcology in Mainz has been pursued as general and comparative Turcology. The 49 contributions to this conference reflect this interest and include titles on the history and linguistic structure of both Turkish and other Turkic languages. The main focus of the volume is on Turkish linguistic issues. A number of studies in
different modern linguistic frameworks deal with Turkish morphological structures, communicative functions and referentiality, the function and syntax of converbs, the
category of voice. Discussions on the structures of relative clauses constitute an important part of the volume. Other fields of studies represented include language acquisition, dialect studies, language policy, contact linguistics, computer linguistics, stylistics and applied linguistics. The volume will be invaluable to students and researchers within the fields of Turcology, linguistics, linguistic typology, contact linguistics, Near Eastern and Oriental Studies.
