What words or phrases do you like to hear or say when in Turkey
For me one I like most is 'iyi aksamlar' (e-ak-shamlar) which means good evening. Another is Çok güzel (Chalk-a-cell). I just like the sound of the words.
How about you?

I think in Gunlukbasi Twin Bee's pronunciation is closer

I reckon you can't do any better than (and I don't know the Turkish spelling) than my good friend, Shirley Burly.

A good phrase to reply with when quoted the first price for goods or services is "Ben Aptal Miyim? " ( Do I Look Stupid? )
