Summary/Abstract: During the Slatin era, Crimean tatars faced many political and social pressures; many had to leave their homelands. Besides, as books of Crimean authors were banished, their language and civilization were deeply harmed. One of the outstanding Crimean intelectuals of those days was Bekir Çobanzade, the well known turkologist, scientist and poet. Çobanzade enjoyed great fame not only with his literary works, but also his studies in turkology. He produced many essays and books on origins and classification of Turkic dialects, relationships of Turkic with Mongolian and Manchu-Tunguzic languages, as well as some original studies on linguistics. This article deals with views of Bekir Çobanzade on linguistic issues.
