Title17th-century Italian-Turkish Dictionaries
AbstractThe first Italian-Turkish dictionary was published in Rome in 1641. Turks and Italians, however, had already been in contact for almost 600 years. The following centuries witnessed the production of various Turkish-Italian and Italian-Turkish dictionaries but the pioneer works of the 17th century must have played a significant role. A closer look at the circumstances which gave birth to four dictionaries between 1641 and 1680, their authors and the dictionaries themselves reveals why these works should not go unnoticed as they have done so far.
