Abstract:

Kazakh, a Turkic language that uses Cyrillic script, is the official state
language of Kazakhstan and is also spoken by people in parts of China,
Russia, and neighboring Central Asian countries. This unique learner's
dictionary features simple definitions, literal translations, English equivalents,
full example sentences, and grammar and usage for over 2,000 Kazakh
idioms.

As students progress to the upper-intermediate and advanced levels of
language learning, they come in contact with cultural concepts embedded in
simple words that they have learned as part of everyday vocabulary. Thus,
they expand their vocabulary into idiomatic expressions. Upper-intermediate
and advanced learners of Kazakh will find this extensive reference work
useful to understand those culturally bound idioms.

Idioms in this reference volume are organized into categories - the human
body, food, clothing, color, number, animals, and nature - that best represent
the topics on which language learners focus at the beginning and intermediate
levels of language study. Five indexes make finding the idiom you want - by
idiom, keyword, or expression in both Kazakh and English - easier.
