Cheese and ham for me
How do you pronounce Peynir in turkish? Is it paynish or payneer? I get both on google, Paynish for cheese and Payneer yok for "No Cheese"

Pay-neer for 'cheese'.

Pay-neer-ley for 'with cheese'.

Pay-neer yok for 'no cheese' or 'without cheese'.

It depends on context, if you're ordering something that comes with cheese, and you don't want the cheese, then peynirsiz is a better way of putting it.

OK thanks and how do you pronounce peynirsiz please?  (I have no clue as below examples sound like "sash" to me, not "rrrr" ;)

Why wouldn't you pronounce it like peynir ("pay-neer"} with "sizz" on the end?

Exactly.  Turkish pronunciation is pretty straightforward, take the sound of each letter and add them together - unlike English!

One of the problems with translations of any kind is that once the translation is re-translated it can back back as something totally different.

For instance:

Cheesy , as in tasting of cheese, translates to 'sevimsiz' on Google Translate. If you then translate sevimsiz back to English it becomes 'without love'.

A man goes to the doctor and says he thinks he has cheese disease.

Doctor says why do you think that?

I’ve got a peynir, and a peynir.
