I was wondering is there a difference between them? Because i go on some sites andit says for example turkmen countries and turkey, and on some language sites its ays turkish and turkmenli, so are they both teh same thing?

Turkmenistan is a different country, in Central Asia.

 

Turkmen is an adjective describing something from Turkmenistan, just as Turk or Turkish describe s.t. from Turkey.

 

But, they have similar roots, and ancestors, as the Turks originally came from Central Asia.

They speak a language very close to Anatolian Turkish. Yes it is Turkish.

 

How do you watch that channel? Satellite dish?

My neighbour´s wife is from Turkmenistan.  She told me it took her three months to learn Turkish once she moved here and asked me why it is taking me so long!

Actually 3 months is too long for someone who speaks any sort of Turkish. My uncle´s son frequently visits Turkic republics in central Asia and he told me that it would take me 2 or 3 weeks to speak their language.

I see a lot of TV programs imported from Turkey. Music clips, movies, series etc. It´s good for you that they have Arabic translation. I also like it when I see some subtitles in a language I understand better than the language I listen to at the same time.

 It depends on the country!

 

I have sat and had a conversation with a Türkmen, with him speaking Türkmence and me speakin Türkçe and we understood each other fine.  I can follow Azeri TV, and have spoken with some Azeris (me Turkish - them Azeri).

 

But Üzbek and Kazakh are one step further removed. You dont just swap vowel sounds, you swap consonants as well e.g. men = ben etc.
