Relevance of the project: there are a sufficient number of words, archaisms in phraseological units, proverbs and paired words in the Kazakh language, as well as in dialects, samples of oral literature and literary and artistic works, as well as in the works of poets and writers whose meaning is not clear in the Kazakh language. In the works of the great Kazakh poets Abai and Shakarim, there are numerous archaisms, words whose meanings are not clear to us now and words that have fallen out of active use today. Within the framework of the project, an analysis of archaisms and obsolete words used in the words of edification and verses of Abai and in the works of Shakarim will be carried out, precise explanations of the meanings of these words will be given.
The purpose of the project: The purpose of this work is to reveal the meaning of archaisms or passive vocabulary in the verses of Abai, Shakarim, borrowed words that are not used in the modern Kazakh language, based on the materials of ancient Turkic monuments and modern Turkic languages, also based on dictionaries of Arabic-Persian, Mongolian languages.
