The Turkish language (Türkçe), which is also referred to as Istanbul Turkish, is the most widely spoken of the Turkic languages, with most of its native speakers living in #Turkey and other parts of Western Asia, and significant group of speakers in Germany, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Northern Cyprus, Greece, the Caucasus, and other parts of Europe and Central Asia. Ottoman Turkish, which was a variation of the Turkish spoken today, influenced many parts of Europe during the time that the Ottoman Empire expanded. When the modern Turkish republic was established, one of Atatürk's Reforms consisted of changing the Ottoman Turkish alphabet with a Latin alphabet. Today, Turkish is recognized as a minority language in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Greece, Iraq, Macedonia, and Romania.
Russian is an East Slavic language and an official language in #Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and many minor or unrecognized territories. It is an unofficial but widely spoken language in Latvia, Moldova, Ukraine and to a lesser extent, the other post-Soviet states.
Orenburg is located on the Ural River, close to the border with Kazakhstan. Historically speaking, in the early part of the 20th century, Orenburg was the capital of the Kirghiz Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic, which is now part of the present-day Kazakhstan. In 1925, Orenburg became part of Russia.
Antalya is the largest Turkish city on the Mediterranean coast with a very rich history. It is also a major tourism hub, being Turkey's largest international sea resort.

@Ada Yavuz Well yes, we have the ç sound when c has an e or an i next to it, but I think it's the same in Turkish though ! Are you studying Romanian by the way ? You know things about Romanian that not many people do, which is fantastic 👍🏻Turkish is a bit hard because it gives me a new way of thinking, rearranging words in a sentence, new vocabulary with some other influences and many suffixes 😅 At the end of the day, Turkish isn't a very melodic or romantic language, somewhat hard to pronounce, but it definitely has a solemn and strong note, and I love the ö and ü sounds, I don't have them in my language and it's so funny to pronounce them 😁❤ If you want to, you can also follow me on Instagram, I don't mind having more Turkish friends :)

Turkish and Japanese or Korean would be interesting too. You wouldn't believe how close they are in grammar. I don't know if there are similar words but I guess they have since Gokturks and Goguryeo were allies against Chinese they probably borrow some words from each other. Like 'su' means 'water' both in Turkish and old Korean (dk if its still in use) and another word I know is Pumpkin which is Kabak in Turkish and Hobag in Korean.

Im Kyrgyz and speak my own language which is Turkik group.Therefore i can understand Turkish and any other Turkik lingo. Also i speak Russian because we were under Soviet Union. When i hear Ukrainian ,Romanian i can unerstand few words which are similar to both Russian and Kyrgyz. Also i heard Mongols speaking and could understand few words as well.(expl:BALTA (Axe) ) same meaning in Mongol,Kyrgyz,Turkish,Romanian etc) Under Golden Horde paperwork and official words were in Turkik language ,therefore i can guess many words settled in Russian language through Hordes.Not Turkey. Russ:Ochag,dengi,tomojnya,arbuz etc,almaz,kolbasa(Kulbashty(chuchuk))bagatyr,kefir etc. And BTW even in English you have few words taken from Turkik language (Because Ottomans were rulers of Islamic world which traded with western countries) Ex. Bergamot,caviar,yogurt,horde. Also deeper in a root its part of Altaic languages ,which includes even Korea and Japanese. TURAN !!!

Again an excellent and lovely video, thanks Bahador. One interesting thing is that, although some words in Russian are Turkic origin, we use different words for them in modern Turkish . For example "карандаш/Karandaş" means pencil in Russian. When the word is divided into two pieces, "кара/Kara" means black and "даш/daş or taş" means stone in Turkish, as you guess black stone symbolizes coal simply. However in modern Turkish we use "kalem" for pencil which is derived from Arabic. Another example is "Китай/Kitay" which means China in Russian. Old Turkic people and Mongols used this word for China. Today our pitiful Uighurs continue to use it. However, in modern Turkish the word "Çin" is used for China. Love and greetings. Selamlar, sevgiler...

By the way, a criticism: since the people are very young, they don't know the old words specially when Turkish and Arabic and Turkish and Persian are compared . In fact this is the case with other Turkic languages too.

Actually in Russian (and other Slavic languages) word order may be any. For example, her sentence "Na obied ja sjela baklažan" may be transformed into "Ja na obied baklažan sjela" (literally: "I on (my) lunch an eggplant have eaten") which sounds still ok in Russian and corresponds to SOV order which is typical for Persian and Turkish. This is because Slavic languages kept inflections (which existed in Avestan, Sanskrit and Latin) which exactly identify what is subject and what is object in the sentence and you don't need make your word order fixed to determine them. However, probably under West European languages influence the preferred word order in Russian is set to SVO (like in English) and usualy most of sentences in speach have SVO. But even in everyday speach you may hear many sentences which are built using other word orders and it doesn't surprise anyone.

In Turkish, although the standard order is SOV, you can do the same as you described for Russian. It can be, VSO, OSV, etc and we don't care much about different orders especially in daily language.

In the telephone sentence if you think a little bit, you could understand the whole meaning as a russian. There is a word called "kirdik (second "i" is spoken like the turkish i without dot)" which means something like "the end" or "it`s over", and could also be understand as "broken" - depending on how you use it. It is more of a slang word, but every russian should know it. It probably derives from the same turkic word for broken. There are muuuch muchh more similiar words between turkic languages and russian.

My brother took a class in Russian language >> He seem to be able to speak simple words. but I always thought it would be difficult for Arab to speak Russian. However from what I see some words are very similar to their Arabic counterpart and some are exactly the same . The word which means nuts in Russian, that word has exactly the same pronunciation in Arabic, but it means a Hotel. That is really interesting.

A few notes, 1. the word Sapka (shapka) is derived from French word "chapeau", means "hat". Russian suffix "ka" is very commonly used in creation new words. Example: futbol (football) + ka = futbolka (t-shirt). 2. The word "Krol" (karol) is derived from the German (franks) king's name "Karolus Magnus" (short. Karl). 3. "Sandik" is also widely used by Central Asian Turks, Ural Turks, as they also had been influenced by Persian culture and language as well. 4. and finally, Russian, Ukrainian, and Balkan Slavic languages have ridiculous amount of Turkic loan-words due to Ottoman Empire and Golden Horde domination.

Magazine in most languages comes from the French word, which meant a warehouse or storage in the medieval era, but evolved to just mean a store/shop in modern French. However, it comes ultimately from the Arabic word, makhazin, meaning warehouses from the verb khazana - to store. In English the word originally meant warehouse or storage facility as well but a magazine list or book was an inventory list for a warehouse, and by the 18th century catalogues selling people goods and alerting people of a store's inventory and sales started to be called magazines as well. We stopped using the French word in preference to the Germanic warehouse, but continued to use the term for the written documents. The magazine of a gun also gets its name from the fact that it is the place where ammunition is stored.

Just in case, keep in mind that "Ğ" is not soft g, it is called 'g is silent' in English, most of Turkish people say soft G for it because they directly translate it from 'yumuşak(soft) g' :)) However, in English soft g (magic, page, generation, engine etc.)) and hard g(grab, gum, strong, pig etc.) exists as well.

Turns out, all of these words also made their presence in the Romanian language as well! They entered Romanian mostly through Ottoman Turkish although some have disputed origins. I bet many of them were introduced under Ottoman rule, and under the Vlah-Bulgarian Empire, where Romanians administered in Slavonic, the official language of the (at the time) present Orthodox Church! Regardless of how they got there, check this out.... Harbuz: watermelon, (the term is used in northeastern Romania and in the Republic of Moldova (greater Moldova or historical Moldova region) Șapcă: hat Sunduc: a box with a cap, usually used to hold good stuff like gold Vișine: (specifically sour) cherries Divan: a sofa without a backrest... mostly found in the countryside Funduc: refers to a Turkish golden coin for us... (so same word, different use?) Carar/caral: used in the 1800s mostly in Romanian, it meant "a decision, a judiciary action" Reclamă: advertisement (paper ad or tv ad) Gazetă: Newspaper, Journal with news (although the word "ziar" is more common, "gazetă" is still an acceptable term/synonym) Papagal: parrot Magazin: store Ecran: screen Ceai: tea Pătlăgea: a plant that produces fruit (mainly "pătlăgică roșie" means "red pătăgea", nowadays everyone just calls it "roșie (red)" and "pătlăgea vânătă" means "purple pătlăgea" now everyone just calls it "vânătă (purple). Pretty cool! Every. Single. Word, ahaha!
