Nyazi is our official Turkish teacher! He is great. His wife who is Azeri also attends the classes.
Here are a few words to give you an idea of what Turkish is like. I couldn’t include the special accents.
Hello! = MERHABA! (roll the R and accentuate the H)
Good Bye! = GULE GULE! (said by one staying, literally means: Go smiling!)
Yes/No = EVET / HAYIR (Janet, you were right, i had written the wrong word!!)
Diarrhea = ISHALIM (yep, we’ve had our first Turkish one) :-(
How much is this? = KAC LIRA?
Sunday = PAZAR (day of the market; bazar)
Monday = PAZARTESI (day after the day of the market!)
