A Seasonal Cook in Turkey: The Joys of being Seasonal in Turkey: loquats/malta eriği and green plums/yeşil eriği.
Hey, thanks Terry for all your lovely comments and now THIS!! Thank you VERY much for being so encouragine! xx
I would repost your blogs every day if I weren’t so lazy Claudia! You do an awesome job!
Hey there! Nice post again. Just a little correction in Turkish. We don’t say “Yeşil Eriği” but “Yeşil Erik” (or just “Erik”).
“k” at the end of some words become “ğ” when there is a suffix. For instance, “Tabak” (plate) becomes “Benim tabağım” (my plate). So, It is correct when you say “Malta Eriği” (loquats) which means “Plums from Malta”. But “Yeşil Erik” stands for “Green Plum” where “Yeşil” (green) is just an adjective.
Thanks for the lesson Erhan! I am going to submit this to “Ankara Legal English” blog. It contains short Turkish lessons also!
My pleasure. And I’m glad you shared the blog which I assume would help me a lot. I’ve been translating many documents from/to English to/from Turkish. I’m working as an auditor, so whenever you need help in Turkish you can always contact me from email@example.com.
I’d really appreciate if you’d help me on my translations as well.
