Summary/Abstract: This paper presents the characteristics of the Turkish suffix -luk which is realised in two ways in the Timok language, one is the rarely used (-luk) and the other is the more frequent (-lъk ). The paper also considers the suffix status in Dictionary of the Timok Dialect by Jaksa Dinic, as well as a comparative review on the condition of the lexical units, which were found in relation to the study of Prvoslav Radic and also in relation to some dialect dictionaries as well as literary language. The objective of this paper is to present the frequency of lexemes in Dinic’s Dictionary which contain the suffix –luk in their composition. The paper also considers the status of these lexemes as well as their characteristics in other dictionaries. Using a comparative method we made a review of excerpt formation, classification and analysis of the examples in relation to the formation in other dictionaries. Analysis of the corpus indicated the frequency of this Turkish origin suffix in Dictionary of the Timok Dialect. We found about fifty lexemes which contain this suffix in their formation. We also noted that there are formal and semantic differences when it comes to the realisation of these lexemes in other Serbian language dictionaries.
