Tuvan - tyva dyl

Postby allemaalmeezinge » 2006-10-21, 18:43

i stumbled about it by chance. i was listening to music. to yat kha. then i was reading a bit about the language.
i was comparing some words with turkish and they are very similar even though tuvan is also within the turkic language family not even in the same or neighbouring subgroup :)
there's a sprachsignale page on it, to listen to some sounds.

some examples:
english - turkish - tuvan
cloud - bulut - булут
to die - ölmek - ɵлүр / ölür
to come - gelmek - чедип келир / çelip kelir
ear - kulak - кулак / kulak
six - altı - алды / aldı

turkish ç relates to a ж/dz in some cases:

to drink - içmek - ижер / idzer

there's also the sound ң / ng


hmm.. :)
maybe theres something in the library..
have no time now,
later :)
