Yours is closer. I have no idea where your teacher got that from, but apparently he speaks a non-rhotic accent. I've always said [ˌæzɚˈbaɪdʒæn] but apparently the stress is usually on the last syllable. I don't know what the stress rules are in Azeri or anything.Quick question, how do you pronounce "Azerbaijan"? I've been pronouncing it [æzəɹbɑɪːʒɑn], but my World Geography teacher pronounces it [æzəbeɪːn].
Why shouldn't Azeris value their heritage? The world would be a very boring place indeed if everyone simply assimilated into the dominant culture.It is too funny that Iranian Azaris have a great struggle to preserve their culture. For me I don't care races (because scientifically there is no pure race) and don't care cultures (although some cultural things are enjoyable for taking a good time such as Norouz).

If I talk to an Azerbaijani person in Turkish (it happened a few times), is it rude to use the word "Azerice" when refering to his/her language?

It's interesting that when I ask them how they learnt Turkish, some people say "just by watching TV". I don't really get it how one can learn to speak by watching TV. I've been watching Ukranian TV regurlarly since a few years, and even though my understanding is 100%, I still can't say much in it in a correct way besides the basic things.

And why do you say that, if I may ask? Is it because the Turkish channels don't have any native speakers?
