Rifat Osmans Letters to Süheyl Ünver: An Ottoman Intellectuals Confrontation with the Alphabet Reform
The debates about language that began during the nineteenth-century era of Ottoman reform (Tanzimat) entered a new stage after the establishment of the Republic of Turkey. These debates first brought about the Alphabet Reform and then resulted in the Language Reform in Turkey. This paper discusses the changing reactions of an Ottoman intellectual, Tosyevizade Doktor Rifat Osman, towards the Alphabet Reform, on the basis of a series of letters he wrote to A. Süheyl Ünver.
