Hello all,


My name´s Elsa from Indonesia, and I´ve just registered here, but been wandering as a guest many times before {#emotions_dlg.bigsmile}


Anyways, so I found this greeting, and I learned that it´s Erzurum related:


"hoş musan, dolu musan boş musan"


What does it mean exactly?


Thanks in advance. {#emotions_dlg.bigsmile}

I think it doesn´t mean anything, it´s just a song. If you search it on Youtube you get the picture.

If I´d have to take a wild guess it would be something like ´don´t worry be happy´. Seen the words hoş, dolu and boş. No matter if (your glass? {#emotions_dlg.bigsmile}) is empty or full, just enjoy. But I´m really taking a swing at it. Don´t listen to anything I say

Thanks for the answer.

I also did a search on google, and found some songs.

But I first heard these words in an interview where both the interviewer and interviewee were from Erzurum. Knowing this, the interviewer started to ask these questions hoş musan, dolu musan boş musan?

I´m guessing that it´s part of a popular folksong from Erzurum so people use it to greet each other.  Is that correct?
