- This introductory Turkish class is open to undergraduate and graduate students. This is the continuation of a sequence of 3 courses from Fall to Spring. The course presents the essential points of modern Turkish grammar, with special emphasis on the features that differentiate Turkic languages from other language groups. The goal will be to achieve proficiency in using the case endings, vowel harmony, basic verb conjugations, and nominalizations and participles in reading and writing. Through the use of communicative exercises in class, oral proficiency skills should reach the "novice high" level by the end of the first year
- Successful completion of the first quarter of elementary Turkish, or permission of the instructor.
- Lectures on grammar are based on Robert Underhill's Turkish Grammar. Besides the exercises included in that work, exercises of a more communicative nature are drawn from Suzan Özel's (as yet unpublished) work, Elementary Turkish: A Communicative Approach. Audio materials based on Özel's work are also available. Practical examples of how the language is used (excerpts from literature, journalism, songs, etc.) are brought in as warm-up exercises to be done as a group. The goal is to transition gradually to using Turkish as the language of instruction.
- Periodic quizzes, written homework assignments, a mid-term exam and a final exam are given. Class participation counts as a significant portion of the grade.
