this may sound kind of dumb, but in the turkish alphabet the i is prononced as e, so i gather the words with i in it are prononced as e if you get me, but in some words where i listen to audio online the i isn't sometimes prononced as e can anyone explain im having trouble saying some words with the i in it because i have completly confused my self!

also i have a book it says the i is pronoced as the first letter of it, and i read on here it is prononced as e so which is actually true or are both

sorry for asking a dumb question i have just confused my self

On this page there are some sound files you might want to listen.

Also try this website's speaking dictionary after you have become a member.

Type, iki, iyi, isim, etc. and press dinle for pronounciation.

Turkish is a phonetic language. Sounds of any letter are always the same.
i (like any other other letter in Turkish) has always the same sound. Its sound is the same as in easy, keep, meet, key.
