This volume contains over twenty articles written by outstanding Turcologists in honour of the Norwegian scholar Bernt Brendemoen, whose oeuvre is reviewed in an introductory chapter. The topics addressed in the articles represent important fields of research in current Turcological studies. Most chapters are devoted to the study of Turkic languages and varieties, exploring issues such as historical developments in the sound systems in Chuvash, Karamanli Turkish and Uyghur, the history and typology of Balkan Turkish and Tuvan, contact induced phenomena in Cypriot Turkish, the writing system of Turkmen, language documentation demonstrated by the examples of Lithuanian Karaim and Noghay, properties of borrowed vocabulary in Turkish, the lexicology of Crimean Tatar, and specific features of diaspora Turkish. Other articles address topics in Turkish literature, such as Turkish science fiction and the works of Mehmet Akif Ersoy, Namik Kemal, and Fatma Aliye Hanim. Another contribution analyses samples of Irano-Turkic folk poetry. Two articles deal with the history of Turkic studies in the Copenhagen School and the history of Post-Ottoman studies. The volume is peer reviewed.
