A new Turkish-Norwegian Dictionary (completed)

The project included 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.

This project published a new comprehensive dictionary of 500 pages in the autumn of 2013. The dictionary contains more entries, idioms and examples than the previous dictionary. Corbacioglu's Norwegian-Turkish Dictionary (1998, 2004) was partly used as a model. Comprehensive research on the vocabulary of contemporary Turkish constituted an important part of the project. 


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