Terribly old fashioned, but somehow wonderful.
When I first found this one, I ignored the exercises and went straight to page 28 with the nice interlinear text.
Given the relative linguistic conservatism of the *written* Armenian language(s), it's "useful" even to those who want to learn contemporary Armenian.
Caveat: You have to be comfortable with the altdeutsche Schrift, or learn it just for this occasion.
And yes, I'm a fanatic admirer of Sayat Nova, not just because of the movie.

Beitraege zum Studium der tuerkischen Sprache und Literatur
Author: I.Kunos, F.Giese
Publisher: Rudolf Haupt Verlag
Publication date: 1907
Number of pages: 298

Format / Quality: Rar'd djvu
Size: 8 MB

The title of this volume is: Materialien zur Kenntnis des rumelischen Tuerkisch, Tuerkische Volksmaerchen aus Adakale.
Now, that particular Adakale turns out to be somewhere far, far away -- or maybe not (hint: it's pretty close to Belgrade).
Once you get used to the orthography, it's enjoyable to read the tales. There are plenty of motifs common to all Balkan peoples...and it's all in spoken Rumelian Turkish except for the typical Austro-Hungarian foreword. I see the latter as a period piece.
I only have this volume for now, but I will hunt for others.

The Apartment (1960) is producer/director Billy Wilder's bittersweet, heart-rending tragi-comedy/drama of a compliant insurance clerk (Lemmon) who secretly lends out his apartment to other company executives for adulterous sexual affairs and liaisons. The plot thickens when the clerk realizes that his building's elevator operator (MacLaine) is being taken for trysts by his married boss (MacMurray) to his apartment. The sophisticated yet cynical film of the early 60s is a bleak assessment of corporate America, bi ... Читать дальше »

Blind Owl (Bilingual - Educational)
Author: Sadegh Hedayat
Publisher: various
Publication date: various
Number of pages: 130 and 36
Format / Quality: RAR'd pdfs
Size: 35 MB
"In life there are certain sores that, like a canker, gnaw at the soul in solitude and diminish it..."

These are the opening lines of the most celebrated novel in Iranian literature, the Blind Owl. Oneiric, Kafkaesque, surreal...you name it. It's stunningly beautiful in its lyricism and equally disturbing in its misogyny.

I found a great edition of the English and a mediocre one in Persian. I'm not familiar with the details of the textual history of the novel, but note that occasionally (for instance, at the very end!) there are whole paragraphs in Persian which are not present in English. If someone can find a more adequate or aesthetica ... Читать дальше »

Morphology and Semantics of the Tanaina Verb
Author: J. M. Tenenbaum
Publisher: Columbia
Publication date: 1978
Number of pages: 264
Format / Quality: Rar'd Pdf
Size: 6 MB

Tanaina aka Dena'ina is another Athabascan language which interests me a lot. It's spoken in the Kenai peninsula of Alaska, with two major dialects. Unfortunately, it is moribund, with less than a 100 speakers. But that's ok, I always throw my lot in with the downtrodden.

This is the only dissertation about the language, to my knowledge.

I've worked so far with the writings of Peter Kalifornsky, but I don't have any other works by the linguist James Kari, who is the most important specialist. If anyone has more, please post, especially the dictionary or Dena'ina Sukdu'a, also by Tenenbaum.

The lady above is Fedosia Sacaloff. ... Читать дальше »

Dictionary of the Hawaiian Language
Author: L. Andrews
Publisher: Whitney
Publication date: 1865
Number of pages: 572
Format / Quality: Rar'd djvu
Size: 34 MB

Here is a pleasant and comprehensive dictionary of the Hawaiian language as it was spoken before the catastrophe of the late nineteenth century which wiped out most of the speakers and culminated in annexation.

We'll see how the pseudo-feudal saga in Ni'ihau ends, for all of its nastiness it preserved the language better than anywhere else.

I don't like kings and queens in general, but I couldn't resist illustrating this one with the unfortunate Lili'uokalani rather than a hula dancer.

Harsusi Texts from Oman
Author: H. Stroomer, T.M.Johnstone
Publisher: Harrassow.
Publication date: 2004
Number of pages: ca.120
Format / Quality: Rar'd Pdf
Size: 13 MB

Harsusi is a Southern Arabian language spoken in Dhofar, Oman by only a few thousand people at most. It is very close to Mehri, another Southern Arabian language which is more vibrant. While related to Arabic, Harsusi and Mehri are perhaps as distant from it as Hebrew or Aramaic are.

Here is a selection of texts collected by T.M. Johnstone. He died in 1983 and the texts were only recently edited.

The version here was used in a Semitic linguistics class offered by me somewhat ad hoc. So, the handwritten original notes by Johnstone are not included (but they are available in the first part of the book anyway!), and the quality is ok, but n ... Читать дальше »

Die Rhetorik der Araber
Author: A.F. Mehren
Publisher: Imperial Press at Vienna
Publication date: 1842
Number of pages: 482
Format / Quality: Rar'd djvu
Size: 13 MB

This is one of my favorite books, in spite of its flaws and occasional musty expression in German. It facilitates one of the most exciting activities in the world, which is of course - reading classical Arabic poetry. So, I've read it backwards, forwards, top downwards, bottom upwards -- from any angle it offers "die rechte Beleuchtung" (page IV)!

Accordingly, I scanned this nineteenth century book very carefully and enthusiastically... just to find a copy on the net a few weeks later. I'm posting the version I found because the file I created for my personal enjoymentbiggrin ... Читать дальше »

Altuighurismen im Tuerkeituerkischen
Author: J.P. Laut
Publisher: various
Publication date: 1998-2000
Number of pages: 85
Format / Quality: RAR'd PDF
Size: measly 350 KB

Two interesting articles, one of them lengthy.

The first one, entitled "Die Uigurismen im Tarama Dergisi (1934)",concentrates on those words from the ancient Uyghur language which were made available in the 1930s, but did not make it into the reformed Anatolian Turkish standard of today, in spite of the successful usage of the word uygarlik for civilization tout court.

The other one, entitled "Zur Rolle des Alttuerkischen in der tuerkeituerkischen Lexik", continues the theme.

The author is a renowned Turkologist who studied with madame Gabain.
