Turkish Fun Facts

Turkish is not related to the other major languages of Europe or the Middle East but instead (distantly) to Finnish and Hungarian. Turkish is an agglutinative language. Agglutination refers to the process of adding suffixes to a root word, so that a single word can convey what English would take a complete sentence to say. For example, the English sentence “They were not coming” is a single word in Turkish: Gelmiyorlard?.  The regularity and predictability in Turkish of how these suffixes are added make agglutination easier to learn than you might think.

Turkish has 'post-positions' rather than prepositions, and objects usually come before the verb.  So the sentence “Ahmet talked about his class” would have the following word order in Turkish: “Ahmet his class about talked.” While this may seem strange at first, you’ll be surprised how quickly this new word order comes to feel natural when you’re learning Turkish.
