We got 20 "Audio does not sound correct" messages on Day 1, so I feel like adding a comment here :) There is nothing wrong with the audio here. It is just too fast, and -k- is not very apparent.
Should there be a difference between "ç" and "c"?
I hear the same sound in "ço" and "cu", something like "djodjuk".
I can hear the difference between the two. Turkish "c" = English "j": Turkish "ç" = English "ch." These sounds are actually pretty close in general though (the only difference is that one is voiced and one is unvoiced). I admit that the end of this word sounds a bit funky (our TTS doesn't really pronounce the k too well)
Hello, i'm brazilian and in Brazil we read "tchodjuk". Sorry if my english isn't good, but i hope help you
Use the slow one. I'm Turkish and they do say it fast in my opinion but just hover over the words sometimes or use the snail thing :)
Memorize thıs table and the approximate English sounds
I memorized a similar table for Spanish and it helped a lot!
It's easy language and the arabs can understand it easily i guess , i'm one of those people who can understand the turkish language very fast because there's a lot of words too close of the meaning in some arabic words , i hope u understand what i just said ^ sorry but i'm not really good in english haha
No. "the" only creates a difference if it is used for the object in the sentence (you'll see in the accusative case skill)
I don't quite understand your response. So it would or would not be equally correct to have typed "a child" or "the child" instead of simply "child" for this translation?
Why is "Çocuk" written with capital letter? Is it like German? Is one allowed to ask those kind of questions?
you are allowed to ask such questions and no nouns are not capitalized in Turkish, only the first word of the sentence and proper nouns are capitalized - just like English
It reminds me of Romanian 'giugiuc' which means 'nice' (slang term). Whoa! I knew more Turkish than I thought I did.
Quick questions, what does the C with that cute thing beneath it differentiate with a normal c.
In a photo in which we have to reply "kız", the immagine shows, for me, a "çocuk". What is the average age which distinguishes the two terms? Çok teşekkürler
I'm loving learning Turkish at the moment, and the comments here are pretty helpful. Maybe this blog post on learning Turkish will also be of some help to people out there on Duolingo: http://www.fortheloveoflanguages.com/polyglot-interviews-alfredo-ramirez-english-spanish-farsi-turkish-french-mandarin-urdu/
why is the`second C without a cedille ( i don';t know how you say it in english) if the pronunciation is definitely tch both times ? she says tchutchu and does not pronounce the final K. from this word I gather that O is pronounced U in Turkish ? Is this s standing rule or are there exceptions ? I am starting the tree from NUL again. I study each language for one week each so after 2 months I start again with each one.
in my answer, I used "boy" as my translation, but it then said that my answer was wrong when very clearly, it listed the following as correct translations: Child, Kid, and Boy. Why was I wrong?
Why is the "c" in the middle also pronounced as "ch"? and is the k normally heard when a native speaks?
I typed child as my answer, and it says it's wrong, and that the answer is child.
Excuse me İam begginer hepl me the difference between these three letters C ç J all of them i hear a same sound
