           Moskos’ Institution-Occupation Model

    • Authors: Durmuş Ali YÜKSEK
      Abstract: The 20th century witnessed an era in which a quick transition occurred fromthe application of draft to the application of the all-volunteer force in thearmed forces throughout the world. This trend still continues today. Thetransition in armies from draft to the all-volunteer force also has caused theinstitutional military understanding to evolve into an occupational militaryunderstanding. In this regard, the “Institutional-Occupational Model,” in whichCharles C. Moskos claims that the armed forces has been in a gradual transitionfrom an institutional model to an occupational model, is such as to shed lighton the rapid changes occurring in the armed forces. In this respect, this studyaddresses the Institutional-Occupational Model, which might also shed light onthe recent changes in the role orientations of the Armed Forces of manycountries, examines the model’s current applications and criticisms towards it,and provides an overall evaluation of the model.

  • “A-” As A Verb And Its Derivatives

    • Authors: Veysi SEVİNÇLİ
      Abstract: Turkish, has been followed up by written documents from the thirteenthcentury to the present day (20th century). The life of the languages;protecting its vitality, keeping up with the conditions of time, and beingprotected and possessed like a national fortune, depends on the institutions,organizations and individuals belonging to that language. The prosperity of thetongues and the disappearance of them are the same as those of interest.However, the voices to enrich the language, the harmony between the voices andthe additions, roots and words they create are important factors. We also triedto emphasize the use of "a" as one of the voices that have anexceptional place in our language as the verb root and the meanings of thewords it created. When we consider the meanings of the words directly or indirectly,almost all of these words have the function of "leaving". However,the function of parting, which is seen in verbs such as "to clarify, to beignored" the verb is not as clear as the body. This shows that there is aslight shift in meaning in every word construction. In our work, based on theworks written in various periods of the Turkish language, especially the TDKdictionary, and the works done on these works, these functions were introducedand explained. Nevertheless, it is not claimed here that all the derivativesderived from the mentioned radical (a-) are shown. The main point we see inthese examinations is that sometimes "leaving" functions are seen inindirect expressions. This must be the richness of the Turkic.
