    Default Why I love Turkey so much...

    Merhaba
    Hello

    No Introduction. You'll understand it after you've read the few sentences below.

    Turkey, my country.

    I wander through these streets that used to be mine
    but the memories are gone.
    Emptiness is choking my soul while my senses
    desperately flare up searching for a familiar sign.
    Then one scent passes by as if God had send it
    to rescue me.
    Hold on Kedicik, in a few months you’ll be back home…

    A little explanation. I've never believed in God untill the first time i walked on Turkish soil. He said: 'Follow me, I will show you my best creation.'
    He was right, it is his masterpiece.

    Seni seviyorum Türkiye...

    well your words touched me .. though am not turkish
    but i`ll tell you why i love turkiye :

    the nature
    the traditions are mostly similar to my traditons
    they are neat freaks as i am one of them
    the language
    the history
    people
    songs
    streets
    and everything there inspires me...

    & as u said
    it assures me more that there is a great god who creates all these amazing places & world

    maybe this is not enough comparing for what is inside me but
    i`ll repeat after you same sentence ...

    Seni seviyorum Türkiye...

    It's very difficult to replay on this topic for someone who is not from Turkey... I am from Bosnia,and since I was a little girl I heard stories about Turkey from my family...it's some kind of tradition in my country to talk about Turkey... We were learning on our history classes about Turkey,and somehow stories about Turkey were all over me ... I just love this country,I have special feelings for Turkey... I love everything that has any kind of connection with Turkey... Somehow in my soul there are two countries,my Bosnia and my Turkey... I love people from Turkey,places,Turkish tradition,songs,movies,mosques,famous historic persons... I LOVE TURKEY

    Well, first ben Suriyeliyim, for me, I'm crazy for something is called "TURKEY" !
    I love Turkey because it has nice nature, nice language, and sure nice songs (Lyrics+Music) !
    also Turkish Language is so similar to Arabic language, so It'll be very easy to learn it for Arabian people.
    And we have many common things between Arab and Türks.
    I love it because i've been there many times.
    also it's very easy to go there now for Suriyeli insanlar, No viza anymore !
    Türkiyeyi ÇOK SEVİYORUM, VE Türkleri ÇOK SEVİYORUM !
    Syria ♥

    Turkish language is not similar to Arabic language.
    It is based on LATIN characters.
    It has a "Vowel Harmony" grammatical structure which means, it's similar to Finnish and Hungarian language.
    It does has some Arabic words, but more than Arabic, it has French and Persian words.
    If you are new about Turkey, I suggest you to visit Ölüdeniz, is a small resort village in the Muğla Province on the South West coast of Turkey on the Aegean Sea.
    Syria is also a beautiful country with lots of different cultures, religions living peacefully all together.
    Very warm greetings from Turkey to Syria and to beautiful Syrian people..

    Exactly, that what I'm saying, it has many Arabic words, and day by day when I'm learning Turkish language I find more Arabic words.
    and yes it has Persian and French words aslo !
    Well, İnşallah when I'll go next time I'll keep this village in my mind.
    I went to İstanbul, Ankara, Kapadokya, Bursa, Antakya(hatay), Mersin, and more but I can't remember..
    Really Türkiye has many beautiful things, Maşallah yani Allah made it like a heaven, but on the earth !
    ah yes elhamdülillah, Syrians are living in Peace, çok şükür.
    Çok teşekkürler dear, ve Suriyeden Selamlar to Türkiye !

    I'll say it because I feel happy when I say "SENİ ÇOK SEVİYORUM RKİYE"
    hope to go there soon inşallah..
    Syria ♥

    I'm sorry, but some information are wrong...

    Turkish Language is not "based" upon Latin characters. The fact, that the latin alphabet was introduced (which I think, was a good decision, as the arab elifba was absolutely wrong for Turkish with its large vowel variety) does not mean, that Turkish is "based" upon latin characters.

    In today's Turkish there are about 6500 words of arabic origin, French 5200 and 1400 Persian.... maybe you do not recognize the arabic origin of a word anymore because you are so used to it in Turkish. And those arabic words are often used with a different meaning. Approximately 14000 foreign words are used in today's Turkish... so nearly the half of it, is of arabic origin.

    Just one example: many Turkish people think, that our beloved "Lahmacun" is a turkish word, only a few know that it comes from arabic lahm + acin (lahm meaning "meat"

    @omero: @lahmacun: lahm is meat indeed, and acin means the mixture of flour and water
    so it is an Arabic expression as well, we say "lahmacin" as well for the same food! xD

    and actually I always wander about how many Arabic words are used in Turkish! I always find it amazing when I relate a word to Arabic! that's why we're so encouraged to learn Turkish! for example the other day my sister was contemplating the word "maskara" which means a fool and then she had a light-bulb moment and said that it's the same Arabic word "maskhara" which means goof or simply "mockery"
    çok harika. değil mi?
    The hours of pain have yielded good,
    Which prosperous days refused;
    As herbs, though scentless when entire,
    Spread fragrance when they’re bruised.

    I find it very funny, that "şams" means "sun" in arabic.

    In Turkish, it has no meaning alone, but we use it in "şemsiye" - umbrella, but we of course mean the umbrella which protects against the rain.


    And about the similarity between Turkish/Finnish/Hungarian...

    many grammatical structures are used in all of them... vowel harmony, use of suffixes etc, but you hardly find a word in these languages, which can be traced back to the same root.

    Austrian and Swiss friends have told me, that Turkish reminds them more of Hungarian, because in Hungarian you also have ö,ü but also ş, ç sounds.... ş, ç are sounds which do not exist in Finnish.

    true... but we also have : é á ö ( short ) , ő ( long ) , and ü( short ) , ű ( long ) which aren't in turkish. And about the á= it's the a from " baran" , our e, is 'e' from " elmas", " energy" , but our é is from " Selin" , and the a - far"
