DEDE KORKUT’TA ķanın-ķamın İLE İLGİLİ YAZIM, AKTARMA VE YORUM KARIŞIKLIĞI ÜZERİNE
On the manuscripts, problems with the orthography may come into question. It is always probable for the scribals to write some words incorrectly, deficiently or affluently. One of the occupations of the researchers dealing with Philology is to solve the reading problems of the text identifying the miswritings on the manuscripts and to put forward the correct way of reading. However this requires an uttermost caution and self-abnegation. Otherwise, the miswritings on the text lead the researcher to misreadings. Therefore, the reasearcher’s preoccupying him/herself with a focus only on the word, expression or the sentence in question is not adequate. It is of vital importance for the correct reading and interpretation of the text that the researcher knows what issues are discussed where in the text, that is context. Another significant point which is completing or supporting this is that the researcher knows which words are where and used in what sense in the text, that is to have a command of the text’s language.
