Bunny is a word used with babies and children, it is preferable for students of English to avoid these kinds of terms; rabbit is the correct word. If one is talking to a young cousin for eg then it is ok to say ' where is the bunny?' But if one is at a conference discussing the habitat of wild life , do not say bunnies live in burrows! :) ( in case non native speakers of English are using this course for their English, I intend to do the English to Turkish one myself after I have finished revising the Turkish one. )

This is a fairly newbie question just out of my own curiosity.... but do Turks ever say "iyi sabah" for good morning?

No, adult people do not usually say 'bunny' unless they are talking to children. If you asked the butcher if he had any bunny you would get a funny look.

I remember Alice in Wonderland having problems with a White Rabbit but I think there was a pharmaceutical explanation for that!

The comments do raise a question. In Turkish, is the a diminutive form of tavşan that would be an equivalent to 'bunny'?
