Days, Months, Numbers, Colors and Other Time Concepts.



Let´s start with the days:


Pazar: Sunday


Pazartesi (Pazar + ertesi, the day after Sunday): Monday


Sal覺: Tuesday


Çaramba: Wednesday


Perembe: Thursday


Cuma: Friday


Cumartesi (Cuma + ertesi, the day after Friday): Saturday.


In Turkey, Cumartesi and Pazar are official holiday days, working days are Pazartesi, Sal覺, Çaramba, Perembe and Cuma.


Let´s see the months:


Ocak: January


ubat: February


Mart: March


Nisan: April


May覺s: May


Haziran: June


Temmuz: July


Austos: August


Eylül: September


Ekim: October

In Turkey, new year begins by 01 Ocak and ends by 31 Aral覺k.


And these are numbers:

Bir: One

襤ki: Two

Üç: Three

Dört: Four

Be: Five

Alt覺: Six

Yedi: Seven

Sekiz: Eight

Elli: Fifty

Altm覺: Sixty

Yetmi: Seventy

For example, to say "Fifty five" , "Elli + be = 55"

Twelve: On + iki = On iki = 12

Three thousand: Üç + bin = Üç bin = 3000

Immediate Hour Concepts:

Its quarter past six:

Alt覺y覺 çeyrek geçiyor.

Note: For another time, we use "geçe" and "kala"

Dörde çeyre kala: When it is quarter to four.

Dördü çeyrek geçe: When it is quarter past four.

In here, we use Accusative and Dative Forms, so I will tell about these at next unites.
