Çarşaf is only for bedsheet? We do not use it for clothes?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ektoraskan

Nope.

Edit: Well, actually we do. The burqa is called "kara çarşaf" (black sheet).

Can we just say sheet? I don't believe I've ever said the word bedsheet before...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DyedBison

"Sheets" is accepted. (Or now it is, anyway.)

Why is "the" needed here?

Should "Where is the bedding" be accepted here?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Eva242549

In English, I think "bedding" would imply blankets, quilts, pillows, etc. as well as linens. I do not know whether the Turkish word implies all this as well.

It doesn't accept sheets but we would say sheets in England
