A Learner's Dictionary of Kazakh Idioms
As students progress to the upper-intermediate and advanced levels of language learning, they come in contact with cultural concepts embedded in simple words that they have learned as part of everyday vocabulary. Thus, they expand their vocabulary into idiomatic expressions. Upper-intermediate and advanced learners of Kazakh will find this extensive reference work useful to understand those culturally bound idioms.
Idioms in this reference volume are organized into categories—the human body, food, clothing, color, number, animals, and nature—that best represent the topics on which language learners focus at the beginning and intermediate levels of language study. Five indexes make finding the idiom you want—by idiom, keyword, or expression in both Kazakh and English—easier.
About the Author
"This is a valuable reference book and tool that will greatly help intermediate and advanced students learn one of the most interesting yet challenging aspects of Kazakh. The book's index makes it convenient to search for idioms. Literal translation, along with arrangement by keyword and general topic, make the book interesting for those not studying Kazakh but wanting to gain insights into the Kazakh worldview."—William Fierman, Indiana University
