1486568013 POSTPOSITIONS IN CHULYM LANGUAGE IN TERMS OF SPACE; TIME AND MOVEMENT RELATIONSHIPS

There are different approaches in reflection of time, space and movement relations on language and explanations of these. New approaches in both philosophy and basic sciences altered the way time and space subject is handled in linguistics. Linguistics may handle these relations in semantic, syntactic and morphologic levels. The way space, time and movement relations are expressed in modern languages differ in accordance with linguistic families. Turkic language family having agglutinative characteristics makes use of suffixes in expressing these relations. In this study, time, space and movement relations were discussed under Chulym language, which is one of the endangered Turkic languages. Some deductions were made following the compilation established as a result of the field research conducted among Chulym Turks by the author between the years 2014 to 2016. As there are not any native speakers of Chulym language who can convey Chulym folk beliefs today, the data were presented not as a folkloric study but as a grammatical study. It was found that in Chulym Turks who interacted with Ket and Samoyed people for a long time and whose language is heavily affected by these people, suffixes are one of the most important means for conveying perception of space and time from deep structure to surface structure.
