Translate That Turkic Word Game

Postby samarqand » 2014-01-18, 4:40

I wasn't sure what to call this, but I came up with an idea to show how similar some of these Turkic languages are.

One person will write a word (noun, pronoun, verb, adjective, whatever) in a Turkic language. The next person will translate that same word into a different Turkic language. Then they will supply a new word for the next person, and so on.

EXAMPLE:
Person 1: [flag=]uz[/flag] olma (apple)

Person 2: [flag=]ug[/flag] alma

[flag=]ky[/flag] köz / көз (eye) <-- for next person to translate

Hope that makes sense!


I'll start:

[flag=]ky[/flag] jürök / жүрөк (heart)
.............Fluent in: Australian English (en-au)
.............Learning: Turkish (tr)
.......Knowledge of: German (de), Uzbek (uz), Hindi (hi)
.......Fascinated by: Arabic (ar), Persian (fa), Russian (ru), Spanish (es), Turkic languages (Uyghur (ug),Kyrgyz (ky) etc)
