    Abstract:
    This article aims to describe some types of adverbial clauses in the dialects of Erzurum. For this purpose I have investigated published and unpublished material collected in the region between 1966 and 1980. I concentrated on converb forms and clause patterns that are unusual from the viewpoint of Standard Turkish. The converb forms are either archaic, like the one in -dıχliyin, or regarded as a feature of Azerbaijanian, like -ende. The clause patterns to be discussed are right-branching clauses based on finite predicates, some obviously copies of Iranian models.
