AN ETYMOLOGICAL DICTIONARY OF TURKISH AND THE HISTORY OF THE HUNGARIAN LANGUAGE
Languages of publication
This paper gives a detailed survey, starting with Ármin Vámbéry's dictionary, of the history of Turkish etymological dictionaries and related aspects of etymological research. A recent product of that research is 'An Etymological Dictionary of the Turkish Language', compiled by the author, that can be seen as a concise preliminary sample of the originally planned project. In the second part of the paper, the author describes some Hungarian-related etymological analyses associated with that project (e.g., on H mogyoró 'hazelnut', tanú 'witness', tapsifüles 'bunny', tor 'funeral banquet', etc.) that are especially relevant with respect to the linguistic and cultural history of Hungarian.
