It's sound like kaş ! :/.

Anyone heard it like that "kaş" too?

The letter "r" at the end of words normally become devoiced, leaving it sounding like a weird sh/r mixture. The pronunciation of this is surprisingly good. It'll take some getting used to, but you will be able to hear to difference between "kar" and "kaş"

How can I differentiate between them? they sound the same


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

They don't, I promise! :) It just takes some training and practice and it is a little hard to do on Duolingo.

The end r in Turkish sounds like vocal ş(like r in Mandarin Chinese)

Is this word related somehow with the colour kara /"black"/? I know that various Steppe peoples are used to name the cardinal directions of the world with colours (usually red (S) - black (N) - white or gold (W) - blue (E)) and for some reason North, associated with snow and frost, is called "black"...

Sen sıfır biliyorsun, John Kar


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

just that you know, "sen sıfır biliyorsun" makes no sense in Turkish, and it is Jon, not John ;). And "Sen hiçbir şey bilmiyorsu, Jon Snow" is already one of the sentence from the course

Kaş is not correct ➡️ Kar
