  • Published on Aug 5, 2018

  • In today’s language challenge, we are comparing Turkish and Arabic. The two languages belong to different family groups. However, due to historical contacts between the two, there are many words in common between them. Şimal, a Turkish speaker from Turkey, and Sora, an Arabic speaker from Iraq, challenge each other with a list of words and sentences. If you have any suggestions or feedback, please reach us on Instagram: Shahrzad (@shahrzad.pe): https://www.instagram.com/shahrzad.pe Bahador (@BahadorAlast): https://www.instagram.com/BahadorAlast 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 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. Arabic, meanwhile, is a Central Semitic language and has official/national status Algeria, Bahrain, Comoros, Chad, Djibouti, Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Malta (Maltese Arabic), Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, SADR, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tanzania (Zanzibar), Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, and Yemen. Arabic is also the liturgical language of Islam and has had an influence on many different languages including Turkish.

    Most of the words mentioned here are Arabic origin ❤️. But if you compare the Iraqi dialect it has so much Turkish origin words ex: خاشوقه ( spoon) , بانزين خانه ( oil station) لهانه ( cabbage) and much more.. also many Iraqi famous dishes are of Turkish origin like: Dolma, Tatli (داطلي) dondurma ( دوندرمه).

    "Fakir", "Fikir", "Syarikat", and "Syair" have the exact same meaning in Malaysian Language. Which I think same goes to Indonesian.

    اعتقد ان كل هذه الكلمات عربية الأصل لان اللغة العربية اثرت كثيرًا بالفارسية والتركية وكثير من اللغات لانها كانت لغة علم وتعلمها الكثير من العلماء الفرس والترك ومن وسط اسيا وحتى من أوروبا ولأنها لغة سامية قديمة وأصبحت لغة دين ثم لغة علم لذلك انتشرت بشكل كبير

    Nice video thank u Bahador. I really enjoyed it 😘✌🏻For me the accent in Turkish is more softer than in Arabic. Is it just an imagination or is it really that way?
