The similarities to Turkish could not have been more obvious, but I don't think they are mutually intelligible, although speakers of both languages would recognize many words from each other's languages.

en tr kz sa
book kitap kitap kiniige
table masa üstel ostuol
pen kalem qalam uruuchuka
write yaz- jaz- suruy-
notebook defter däpter tetereet
chair sandalye orındıq oloppos
window pencere tereze tünnük
