Mine is "Muvaffakiyetsizleştiricileştiriveremeyebileceklerimizdenmişsinizcesine" (As though you happen to have been from among those whom we will not be able to easily/quickly make a maker of unsuccessful ones) :)

I personally am a big fan on "Allahallah" which I even use in daily life here in the States. Otherwise, I love the sound of the word "muhafazakarlık" and love the soft "a" :)

What is the meaning of "Allahallah"? I listened to it many times in a TV Show and I don't know what they want to say with that haha

I'm not a native speaker, but my host family generally uses it to mean "oh my god" or to express their frustration, especially when driving here in Turkey (driving here is...different) :)

As I can remember, I watched that that guys said Allahallah in that kind of moments. Now I can understand it well haha, tesekkurler!

Merhaba Ignacio, I don't speak turkish very well at all, but I did find this page online with lots of "Allah" based expressions explained: http://www.turkishlanguage.co.uk/streetturkish.htm

I hope it is useful for you.

We use Allahallah when we suprised or when a thing didn't happen as we predicted how it will happen. For exemple : 'Allahallah, neden gelmedi?' Meaning : 'Allahallah, why he didn't come?'

That's cool haha. I learnt the word "şirin" in Turkish class in my university. "Cici" is also another one I guess. :)

Ben buraya gediğim zaman şaşırdım duvarda her yer "şirin" yazdılar. Ondan sonra "şirin" "smurf" demek öğrendim ama hala anlamiyordum neden duvarlarda o kelime yazdılar. Günümüzde biliyorum: "şirinler" yerel futbol takımın takma adısı.

Ben buraya gediğim zaman duvarda her yere [yer should be in dative] "şirin" yazmalarına şaşırdım [that would be the correct word order]. Ondan sonra "şirin"in [it should be genitive] "smurf" demek olduğunu [sounds wrong without this verb] öğrendim ama hala neden duvarlara [it should be dative] o kelimeyi [should be accusative] yazdıklarını anlamıyordum. Şimdi [günümüzde = nowadays/şimdi = now] biliyorum: "şirinler" yerel futbol takımın takma adı. ["adısı" uses the same suffix twice, therefore sounds rather funny for me]

Excuse me, I couldn't stop the Grammar Nazi inside me. But hey! This is a language learning site, and I'm here to help.

Haha, it's such a great word.

In the Turkish class I took we were learning about food, possessive suffixes, and vowel harmony all in one go. The teacher used "muzumuzu" as an example and it's stuck with me ever since.
