sentences

I can speak a little turkish

I can only speak a little turkish

If you are wishing to get past someone in a supermarket , shop etc do you say pardon.

>If you are wishing to get past someone in a supermarket , >shop etc do you say pardon?
It is the preferred way to say sth if you wish to get passed someone. You can use pardon, but this is not Turkish. Instead you can say, "afedersiniz" meaning that "excuse me" or "izin verir misiniz?" meaning "could you let me...". Nevertheless, you can rarely see some people getting past sb without saying sth but this not a gentle way.
Hope this helps.
