Summary/Abstract: This article represents an attempt to include into the study of origins, development and characteristics of Serbo-Croat grammatical terminology such less known sources as the first Turkish-Bosnian-Bosnian-Turkish grammar written by Ibrahim Berbić in both Turkish and Serbo-Croat and published in Constationople in 1893. The analysis presented in this article concerns only Serbo-Croat grammatical terminology, which Berbić used to describe the Turkish language. That part of the grammar was written in Serbo-Croat but in the Arabic alphabet. It has been found that Berbić shaped his grammatical terminology by: 1. taking over from the Arabic grammar the fixed grammatical terms which he occasionally adapted to either Turkish or Serbo-Croat. 2. taking over the already established terms from the existing Serbo- Croat grammatical tradition. 3. including into the grammatical terminology those Serbo-Croat words which were not strictly related to grammar. 4. loan-translations from various Arabic languages.
