Abstract:

Turkish - Azerbaijani Dictionary of Interlingual Homonyms and Paronyms

Vügar Sultanzade
Mediterranean University in North Cyprus

Edited by Javanshir Shibliyev

Although mutual intelligibility between Turkish and Azerbaijani is
extremely high, it is possible to observe differences in the use of
homonymous words. Interlingual homonyms are words and idioms which are
identical in form but different in meaning. Interlingual paronyms are like
homonyms. They are etymologically related words, which have slight
differences in form and have different meanings. Interlingual homonyms and
paronyms are thought to be the most problematic words for translators, they
are often named "translator's false friends".

As the issue of such words between Turkish and Azerbaijani has not been
subjected to comprehensive investigations, the aim of this dictionary is to
fill this gap and present challenging material for the study of diachronic
and interference problems between Oghuz languages.

The book consists of the preface, the dictionary part and appendixes.
Preface focuses on the main reasons that interlingual homonyms and paronyms
emerge. In the dictionary part, a large number of interlingual homonyms and
paronyms have been subjected to comprehensive analysis. Appendix I contains
the list of verbs which have one and the same meaning but different
argument structures in Turkish and Azerbaijani. Appendix II provides index
of interlingual homonyms and paronyms.

The dictionary can serve as a valuable source for linguists who are
interested in Turkic languages, both synchronically and diachronically.

Abstract:

The Syntax of Numerals in Bosnian

Nedžad Leko
University of Sarajevo

This monograph deals with numerals with special emphasis on numerals in
Bosnian and their syntactic behaviour. At least eight types of numerals in
Bosnian may be singled out, and taking 'five' as an example, we have the
forms pet, peti, petoro, petori, petorica, petica, petina, po pet
representing the various types of numerals. However, syntactically all
these numerals behave as three distinct categories, namely as quantifiers,
nouns and adjectives.

Chapter 1 is devoted to numerals in general.

Chapter 2 deals with numerals in Bosnian describing them according to the
traditional classification of numerals as cardinal, ordinal, collective, etc.

In Chapter 3, the author offers some theoretical considerations about the
syntactic behaviour of numerals in Bosnian. Since theoretical
considerations are based on real language data, it was inevitable to repeat
in Chapter 3 some parts of the discussion from Chapter 2, which is mainly
concerned with the description of various types of numerals. Those readers
who are mainly interested in theoretical considerations may read first
Chapter 3, which also gives some crucial descriptive facts that are
extensively dealt with in Chapter 2.
