Genre specificity is studied. In particular, the authors discuss special aspects of informative, analytical, and artistic and publicistic genres in «Terjiman».

Materials of the newspaper can be a headquarters for issues of ethnology, pedagogy, history, authentic, sociology, economy, literature, publicistic of Turkic-speaking nations of Russian Empire, most notably of Crimean Tatars in the XIX-XX centuries.

In spite of unstructured inner architecture, «Terjiman» lined up behind itself the nation creative forces. New genres, unlike for erstwhile Crimean Tatar literature, just arose on the newspapers broadsides. In particular, I. Gasprinsky used such kind of genres as informative (chronicle, vignette, personal, review, correspondence, etc.), analytical (true articles), and artistic and publicistic ones (newspaper story, feuilleton, essay).

Studying special aspects of «Terjiman’» genres provided an opportunity to follow up the way of Crimean Tatars periodical rise and evolution. We came in view of the fact that I.
