Bire çeyrek var: It is quarter to one , Biri çeyrek geçiyor: It is quarter past one , Saat bir buçuk: It is half past one.
What's the meaning of "it's a quarter of one" in Time context?
Wasn't it supposed to be "it's a quarter past one"?
"a quarter of one" in the English of those n the North East of the US means "A quarter to/till one"
I see... I've never seen such structure before, so this answer meant nothing to me.
About my second question, nevermind, I got it after some exercises.
It is pretty popular around Philly and in more rural parts of Upstate New York and New England. I am also a native English speaker who has been living in Boston for 6 years and has traveled around this region a lot for projects in sociolinguistics :)
We never changed the best translation...it has always been what it is. :)
