Abstract


The study reported in this paper tends to investigate the present status of Persian language in modern Turkish language through investigating the extent of familiarity of Turkish university students with Persian loan personal names as a part of Persian loan vocabulary. 50 Turkish students were selected through purposive sampling technique and the data was collected through semi-structured interview.

A qualitative analysis of data through Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA) technique also revealed interesting facts about students’ both linguistic and non-linguistic knowledge about their language.
