Can someone kindly help?

 

I have recently come across the arada sirada concept yet do not comprehend it fully.

 

Would someone gracefully help to clarify it?

 

Tesekkurler in advanced.

WHAT YOU HAVE HERE IS AN IDIOM, LEARN IT AS IT IS

 

arada sırada = randomly intermittent, from time to time, with time intervals in between (with implication of longish intervals)

 

NOTE: should you also come across the expression "sık sık", that also means "from time to time" but the implication is that the intervals are short....perhaps the word "often" would be the exact translation.
