In Turkish, would you ever put a comma between değilim and ama? It's accepted in English grammar, so I was wondering.

I'd also like to know this. Turkish punctuation is a great mystery to me, especially on places like Facebook.

Nope, I haven't seen one there before :D I am pretty sure they aren't used before "ama" in most circumstances.

coma or comma :D I would assume that the usages of a coma are the same ;)

But yes, they can used different in many cases (and are used much less frequently in Turkish than in English).

What's the difference between "müdür" and "yönetmen"? İs the latter a film director?

Mutluyum is very hard to understand on the 'tape' if you listen the sentence. Sounds more like mutveğim....
