A new Turkish-Norwegian Dictionary (completed)

The project includes work on a new and improved Turkish-Norwegian dictionary.

About the project

The previous Turkish-Norwegian dictionary, written by Bernt Brendemoen and Yasar Tanrikut (first edition appeared in 1980, the last in 1997), is too small for today's needs. A new comprehensive dictionary of 500 pages is now being prepared. It contains more entries, idioms and examples than the previous dictionary. Corbacioglu's Norwegian-Turkish Dictionary (1998, 2004) is partly used as a model. Comprehensive research on the vocabulary of contemporary Turkish constitutes an important part of the project. The dictionary was published in the autumn of 2013.


The project is partly financed by Norwegian companies having activities in Turkey, primarily Statoil.
