Members of this forum have previoulsy been really helpful at deciphering some notes written in a sort of phonetic Turkish by a young homeless woman in Edinburgh.

The latest (below) is very brief and I think is about her needing a bag - but would appreaciate any suggestions about what she has said:

´Ben bir valiza istiorum bic´

many thanks

I agree with your translation Robin

I want a suitcase. Ben bir valiz istiyorum.

I´m not sure if the last part is her attempt at the English - "big", as she has used ´c´ to mean ´k´ in previous notes.

In Turkish, if she wanted to say ´I want a big suitcase´ it should have been

Ben büyük bir valiz istiyorum.
