Quoting si++

 

 

 

 

 Sorry, just trying to bring the thread back to the original discussion.

 

I also forget Gross National Product (GSMH), where I always find it convoluted that the Turkish for Gross is Gayri Safi which is literally "not-Net".

 

Out of interest, are all these uses of gayri with a word of Arabic or Persian origin?

Yes they were all produced by Arabs and imported by Turks. I don´t see any Persian origin in my list.

 

If you can find one with Persian origin it may mean it was produced by Ottomans not Arabs.

Quoting si++

 

 

I wouldn´t consider them prefix inTurkish, if they cannot be applied to any word in Turkish.

 

Anti-madde

Mikro-kent

Mikro-yaşam

 

any other?

 

Tele-kulak

Tele-kız

 

As suffix

Çay-kolik, kahve-kolik, iş-kolik (using -kolik part of al-kolik (alcaholic))

At-masyon (using -masyon in for example oto-masyon (automation))

Dokun-matik, banka-matik, para-matik (using -matik in oto-matik (automatic))
