The longest word in the Turkish language !!
« on: June 17, 2015, 18:35:17 PM »
Believed by many renowned Turkish scholars to be the longest , single word in this fascinating language , ( to me at least )  ;

The tongue-twisting, 70-letter " Muvaffakiyetsizleştiricileştiriveremeyebileceklerimizdenmişsinizcesine " , or “as if you are from those we may not be able to easily make a maker of unsuccessful ones,”

I initially struggled to make sense of the English translation  but , if one really analyses and thinks about it, there is a definitive reasoning in there !!

Any chance of your explaining what that reasoning might be. "You are pretending you not a teacher of failure" perhaps?

Or, you can Google the explanation if you can't wait for Gordy.

I'm pretty sure it isn't "antidisestablishmentarianism"
