Yep I know, they are dialects of the same language, but people in Turkey tends to think that the dialect of prestige is Istanbul's Turkish, while Azeri is simply funny :lol:.

Azeri is dialect of Turkish or not? It's not a good discussion. Who can fix it which language is dialect which is not.

Indeed Turks call themselves wrong, I think. Turkey's Turks are members of "Oğuz Turkish". Normally Turks in Turkey should have called themselves "Oğuz" as Azeris do.

I think Oğuz Turkish people are a legend. Once Turks and Mongols ruled even Egypt and Europe. But it means Egypt Palestine and Europe is Turk now?

I meant that Turkish race is a legend. Some warriors and heros came to here then they ruled the people as minority. It's why all Turkish empires lived not more. Because they didn't bring their civilizations though they used civilizations of region. For example when Turks came to here,Greek,Armenians and Kurds were living here. And Ottoman Empire didn't aim to make these people Turkic. Ottoman Empire aimed to Islamize people. "Turk" was not a good thing for an Ottoman sultan. Moreover "Turk" was given to Ottoman society by Europeans. Because Europeans saw Ottoman Muslims as barbarian. So the best term for barbaric nation was "Turkic" nation. Actually "Turk" was used by Europeans to humiliate Ottoman Muslims.
