I started working with the permission of these two valuable authors. During the design phase, the thought that it would not be sufficient to limit the dictionary to only theater terms gained strength in me and as my works progressed, the Dictionary of Performing Arts Terms became more and more prominent.
Since the scope of the word “performance” which I use for “performance” evokes a wider field than the word theater, this work includes opera, ballet, dance, puppet, shadow play, story animation, circus and. spectacle skills also entered. Thus, the Dictionary was prepared in five separate sections; however, in directories, all terms in Söz-lük are together. In which parts the terms are to be searched, they are shown with similar abbreviations such as «TÎY» (Theater), «KGÖ» (Puppet and Shadow Play), «ÖYC» (Story Animation).
There are more than 2700 items in the Glossary of Performing Arts Terms. In addition, German, French and English equivalents of the stage technique terms, as well as Italian equivalents, were also given. In the old terms index, Turkish words of Osmanh words that today’s youth do not understand are shown. In the directories, Turkish is directly opposite the foreign term, so that especially for those who will translate from foreign languages to Turkish, these directories are provided with the opportunity to use these directories as a dictionary of performing arts.
I would like to thank the Chairman of the Term Section, Assoc. Dr. I would like to thank Aydın Köksal and dear Terim Branch staff, and Sevinç Printing House employees who meticulously carried out the printing work.
