The Turkish Language Association (Turkish: Türk Dil Kurumu, TDK) is the regulatory body for the Turkish language, founded on 12 July 1932 by the initiative of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk and headquartered in Ankara, Turkey. The Institution acts as the official authority on the language, contributes to linguistic research on Turkish and other Turkic languages, and is charged with publishing the official dictionary of the language, Güncel Türkçe Sözlük. A Language Council (Turkish: Dil Heyeti) which was established in March 1926 following approval of a draft bill presented by Education Minister Mustafa Necati in the Turkish parliament. In 1928 it was tasked with the latinization of the Turkish alphabet. The Language Council would be put under the supervision of a Central Bureau, in which also Ahmet Cevat Emre, later the head of the Grammar and Syntax commission of the TDK would take a seat in. Upon request of Prime Minister Ismet Paşa (Inönü) the Language Council attempted to translate the French dictionary Petit Larousse into Turkish. The council then assigned certain words from the new Turkish dictionary to popular Turkish authors and professors of the Istanbul University, the only Turkish university at that time. The professors refused the use of the proposed neologisms which caused some protest by the Language Council to Ismet Paşa. The language council was dissolved in July 1931, after the Turkish parliament canceled their funds over the lack of results. Also years after having been tasked to translate the French Larousse, there was no Turkish translation of it. More information...
