German - Turkish: an overview of the most important words

Merhaba! That is Turkish and means “Hello!”. Welcome to learning Turkish. And so that you can do this safely, you can always look up the still unknown words online with our German-Turkish dictionary. Looking up Turkish terms wasn't that easy in the past. Because there was still a time when Turkish was written with Arabic characters: with this beautiful calligraphic script. But that has changed since 1928 when Ataturk introduced the Latin letters. That makes it easier for us to read and write Turkish today. Turkish has been the state language since the establishment of the Turkish Republic in 1923. The high-level language is based on the Istanbul dialect. Turkish belongs to the Turkic language family. The Turkic peoples were native to Asia between the Khangai and Altai mountains.
Today Turkish is spoken by around 80 million people. And in Germany, too, you have the opportunity to put your language skills to practical use. Because over 2 million people who speak Turkish live here.

Features of the Turkish language

Turkish is an agglutinating language. This is a grammatical function and means that you always add a suffix to the end of the word to change its meaning. For example, the little word "evdeyim" is actually a whole sentence and means: I'm at home. Because the suffix "- de" for the place name and the personal suffix "- yim" are added to the basic meaning of "ev = house". You can form whole sentences with just a few letters.
It is at least as exciting to observe that Turkish is a vowel harmonic language. Because in an original Turkish word there are either only dark vowels such as a, o, u, and ı or light vowels such as e, i, ö, ü - this also makes it very easy to find out whether the word really comes from Turkish, or possibly from Arabic - then it deviates from this scheme.
