The Little Prince in Turkish
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Note: these books are special orders, so they will take longer to ship than other products.
Equally loved by children and adults alike, The Little Prince is one of the most translated books on the planet - which is fortunate, as we are able to offer here editions in many languages for your (or your child's) enjoyment! With wonderful and whimsical illustrations by the author, this delightful tale straddles a world between adulthood and childhood, philosophy and fantasy, satire and fable, and reminds one not of great children's authors of the past, but of more unclassifiable writers like Carroll, Milne, and Tolkien, who seem to be writing as much for older as younger readers, and whose writings can be enjoyed on many levels. Written in 1943 by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, who disappeared shortly after in WWII during a flying mission for the Allies in Northern Africa, it became an instant cult classic and has remained so ever since. Enjoy The Little Prince in the language of your choice, and check regularly, as we will be adding new versions as they become available.

Turkish (Descriptive Grammars)
Jaklin Kornfilt
Turkish is spoken by about fifty million people in Turkey and is the co-official language of Cyprus. Whilst Turkish has a number of properties that are similar to those of other Turkic languages, it has distinct and interesting characteristics which are given full coverage in this book. Jaklin Kornfilt provides a wealth of examples drawn from different levels of vocabulary: contemporary and old, official and colloquial. They are accompanied by a detailed grammatical analysis and English translation. 1997, hardcover, 575pp.
"As a reference work on Turkish on linguists, Turkish has no equal. It is more comprehensive, more up to date, and more effectively organized than any other description of the language. The method of organization, as well as the detailed Table of Contents and the Index, make a wealth of information available almost instantaneously. It is, simply put, an admirable reference work on Turkish for linguistics."
- Steve Seegmiller, Montclair State University

Reference Grammar of Modern Turkish
Lloyd Swift
A Reference Grammar is neither a text book nor a dictionary. Examples are given in this work but there are no student exercises. Glosses are provided for words, phrases and longer utterances but these are such as seem appropriate in context and are not intended to guide the student to the full range of word-meaning - for which a good dictionary should be consulted. Examples selected are such as are likely to be easily understood by the intermediate student, there being no point in employing abstruse Turkish vocabulary to illustrate basic grammatical structures. 1997 hardcover. 278pp.

Turkish Grammar (Second Edition)
Geoffrey Lewis
Since its appearance in 1967, Professor Lewis's 'Turkish Grammar' has been the standard work on the language throughout the English-speaking world. This revised and fully updated new edition further reflects the results of the language reform movement which, though not so drastic in its effect on the spoken language, has made anything written before the early 1930's, and a lot since, increasingly obscure to subsequent generations. Incorporating much new material, it presents an authoritative, lucid, and engaging text, setting out every form and construction of pre- and post-reform Turkish that may be encountered in print, as well as colloquial usages. 2000, paperback, 300pp.
