ABSTRACT

This study aimed to sort through loan words that entered into Turkish from foreign languages and that are used in the fields of literature, grammar, linguistics, and pedagogy, based on the latest edition of the Turkish Dictionary published by the Turkish Language Society in 2011. The study has a survey model, and the data were collected with a document-examination technique and presented in terms of percentage and frequency. As a result of the study, it was determined that the number of loan words used in the field of literature was 196, in the field of grammar was 102, in the field of linguistics was 20, and in the field of pedagogy was 18 in Turkish. It was reported that Arabic was the language from which most words used in the fields of literature and grammar were borrowed and that French was the language from which most words used in the fields of linguistics and pedagogy were borrowed. It was seen that a vast majority of the loan words are nouns in the fields of literature, grammar, science, and pedagogy.
