This volume contains contributions in English and German on various topics of linguistic turcology. All contributors are in some way associated with the turcological department in Mainz. The articles cover a broad specter of linguistic fields such as syntax, phonology, morphophonology, semantics, pragmatics, lexicon, onomasitcs, socio-linguistics and language contact. All major branches of the Turkic languages are covered, with the focus of the individual contributions either on a single language or on several languages from a comparative perspective. Both synchronic and diachronic issues are addressed. There are contributions with either a descriptive or a theoretical bias.
