Özet

The early twentieth century experienced rapid and radical changes in linguistics as the multiethnic Ottoman Empire transformed to the nation state of the Republic of Turkey. Heated debates divided intellectuals into two groups, those defending the Ottoman language and others in favor of Turkish. A discussion was initiated in the 1910s after the publication of the treatise Lisanımız (1930) by Ali Ekrem (Bolayır) Bey where he displayed his opposing views on both the new Turkish letters and the linguistic simplification activities of the early ’30s. This article explores Ali Ekrem’s largerly unnoticed defence of Ottoman Turkish and the response of intellectuals defending the national language.
