Formation and Development of Literary Terms in Turkic Languages (Study Background)


Background/Objectives: Terminology of literary studies in Turkic languages reflects traditionally established objects and shapes the subject of literature, fixing its fundamental and specific concepts as a system of denotations. Methods: The origins and the development of language together with the studies in terminology represent one of the currently important problems in modern linguistics. The authors describe conception and development of terms in the theory and history of literature in Turkic languages using description and historical method, applying the analysis of scientific sources. Findings: Old Turkic scripts and comparative dictionaries reveal common terms used in modern lexicon of literary studies in different phonetic forms. The history of terminology studies, the issues that used to be relevant before and that are of current importance now are crucial for further development. National terminology is specific and original, as each nation goes through its own stages of developing culture, science, politics, linguistics and other spheres. The authors assume that, before the modern period, Turkic literary terminology has passed a long and laborious path. National sources of Turkic terminology in literature studies are patterned according to the basic periods of developing general literary language and general national terminology. Applications/Improvements: The terms of literary studies are not equally developed in Turkic languages. Some provide comprehensive monographs and PhD theses, while others have just outlined the ways for studying these terms.
Keywords: Literary Studies, Study of Turkic Languages, Special Vocabulary, Terminology, Terms of Theory and History of Literature
