I've finished the whole MT Arabic set. In the last few lessons it taught verb forms II and V, such as
كسّر - to break (cause to break) (form II)
تكلّم - to speak (form V)
I'm going to list some examples of masdars for these forms from Turkish, so hopefully I'll remember the masdar patterns too. I want to be able to tell the grammatical category of any Turkish word that comes from Arabic.

Next on the list: Syrian Colloquial Arabic. It has 8 chapters in total. The first 2 I'll probably be able to do very fast and then I'll have to work a little harder.

I think it is common in some other Arabic countries as well, whenever someone says thank you to my professor he always answers with it (he's Iraqi) and a chatroom I used to use a lot of gulf Arabs used it but especially Saudi's.

There was a funny episode today at work. I asked my colleague if she wrote the date correctly and I used the word "tarih" (date). She replied "Evet tarihi doğru yazdım" (Yes I wrote the date correctly) and my other colleague chuckled when she said that.

I was like 'Why, what's going on?' And they explained to me that tarih is normally pronounced with the long "a" but I used the short "a" and my colleague repeated it the way I said, and that sounded funny. Ok I won't forget to pronounce it long the next time! (Also it's an example of how non-phonemic differences still create a foreign accent, because the vowel length is non-phonemic in Turkish).

Later I asked my colleague if I make many mistakes when I speak Turkish. He gave me a couple of examples, like how I would always say yönetimcilik instead of yöneticilik (management), and like I once said "sixty thirty" when arranging the time on the phone instead of "six thirty", but he assured me I don't make many mistakes. That's ... good I guess. :partyhat:

There is so much going on in my life lately that I have to postpone any language related activities (besides using Turkish in my everyday life, of course). Arabic will have to wait.
