Azeri-influenced English in Azerbaijan

Postby yurf » 2009-07-09, 17:23

Would anyone have any comments on how the influence of Azeri has affected the English spoken in Azerbaijan? I'm thinking particularly, though not exclusively, of English spoken by native Azeri speakers. What I remember particularly are pragmatic influences, like responding "Thanks" when asked "How are you?". I'm wondering whether anyone has any other thoughts on how Azeri has influenced the vocabulary and grammar used when speaking English in Azerbaijan. Thanks in advance for any comments.

In Turkish and Azeri, when asked "how are you", answering "thank you" is the most common thing, since they are thanking for being polite asking.
