About Turkish Language

 

Do you know anything about Turkey and the Turkish?

Turkish is one of the major languages of the world with over 70 million speakers. U.S Department of State has listed Turkish as a Critical Language to encourage the students to explore culture and build relationship with other countries.  Turkish is the official language of the Republic of Turkey. Turkey is a transcontinental country is located between Europe and Asia.

Learning a new language are usually interested and each language might have unique grammar structure. Turkish grammar structure follows subject-object-verb (he me loves) and it also has vowel harmony.  Vowel harmony is the vowels in suffixes can be change according last vowels in the headword. On the other hand, Turkish language builds a sentence with one single word through suffixes such as “Gerceklestirilemeyenlerdir”. This is a one-word sentences and it is meaning “those are the things which could not be real” how fascinating is right!!
