Five fingers on my right hand

Five fingers on my left hand

All are together ten fingers

Count and see, if you´d like

One, two, three, four, five...

 

"say bak" means "count and see"

 

We have this kind of statements as two verbs without adding "and" between them.

git gör - go and see

çık git - get out and go

Its like urdu ´jao dekho--> go and see´ without addin ´aur´ that is ´and´

 

Its interesting how many of turkish words aee similar to urdu e.g insan, kitap, kalem, behes, hayvan and so on. Infact the word Urdu is its self derived from Turkish word Ordu which ofcourse you guys know means army....
