The Turfan dialect of Uyghur.


The Turfan dialect of Uyghur.

Yakup, Abdurishid.



488 pages



Turcologica; v.63


Drawing on fieldwork between 1990 and 2000, Yakup presents a synchronic description of the phonology, morphology, and lexicon of that dialect of modern Uyghur, a Turkic language, spoken in the Turfan region of the present Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region of China. He also includes a rather large corpus of texts with facing English translation, and a dialect vocabulary, but no index.
