I am really so suprised that people speak about estonya.net here.
Two years ago, i have visited estonia and i recognized that people here don't know about estonia so much, so i decided to create a website to tell estonia to Turks.
For the begining, i made the site for both for english and turkish. but i didn't have a lot of time so i decide to make it only in turkish language.
I think, the most useful part of the site is the vocabulary. I plan to enlange it, maybe people here will help me to do that.
And the "turkic" people topic. As i know, we Turks in Turkey are Oghuz. Gagauz people in Ukraine and Moldova, Turkmens and Azeris almost speak the same language. And the languages Jakut and Chuvash are the most distance dialects of Turkic languages.
Interestingly, turkic and finnic people don't away from each others. Tatar and Azeri people in Estonia are some examples. Also Turkic countries like Tatarstan, Bashkir and Chuvash are so close, or even inside of the finnic states like Mari El or Urtmurtia.
Actually, i don't think that finnic and turkic people are related but at least, our languages have similar structure and sounds. While making the dictionary, i have even seen some words are similar.
Ole, Ol, To Be
Mina, Ben (Men in azeri), I
Sina, Sen, You
Unustama, Unutmak, To Forget
Kõhr (Kıhr), Kıkırdak (Kõkõrdak), Cartilage
-Ma, -Mek -Mak, infinive form
And there can be some more similar words too. Maybe these are just chance event or maybe we borrowed some words from each others's languages in anciemnt times : )
