Turkish Alphabet


Turkish alphabet consists of 29 letters - 8 vowels and 21 consonants.
Most letters in Turkish have pronunciations familiar to English-speakers, but there are a few notable exceptions:

1. Every letter is pronounced
2. Each letter has only one sound

Three letters of the English alphabet are missing in the Turkish alphabet:

1. (Q-q)
2. (W-w)
3. (X-x)

There are seven additional characters not found in the English alphabet:

1. (Ç-ç)
2. (Ğ-ğ)
3. (I-ı)
4. (İ-i)
5. (Ö-ö)
6. (Ş-ş)
7. (Ü-ü)

Pronunciation:

A, a like the a in car
B, b like the b in bet
C, c like the g in gender
Ç, ç like the ch in chance
D, d like the d in debt
E, e like the e in less

F, f like the f in felony
G, g like the g in game
Ğ, ğ this is a very weak sound, not pronouncing at all will be ok
H, h like the h in hello
I, ı like the e in halted
İ, i like the ee in keen

J, j like the ge in garage
K, k like the k in kelly
L, l like the l in lamb
M, m like the m in man
N, n like the n in neighbor

O, o like the a in ball
Ö, ö like the u in urge
P, p like the p in pen
R, r like the r in rent
S, s like the s in send
Ş, ş like the sh in shed

T, t like the t in tennis
U, u like the oo in good
Ü, ü like the u in nude
V, v like the v in vent
Y, y like the y in yes
Z, z like the z in zen

You're very welcome. Very Happy
I don't have sound file for the examples. Try this online dictionary:

http://www.turkishdictionary.net

when you look up for a word, a play icon will be shown, click on it to listen to the word. I hope it will help you to get familiar with the Turkish word pronunciation. Listening to Turkish songs will also help. Wink
