History:
========

After a few initial lists of travel agents and mailing lists, Ahmet
Parlakbilek wrote the initial version of the Frequently asked questions
list for soc.culture.turkish in July 1992, before turning it over to me
for maintenance.  He is going to be busy for a while, and I intend to
take care of it.  Please send suggestions and updates to
sctfaq@express.net (Mustafa Soysal).  Please keep in mind that I
only maintain this collection, and have no means of verifying the
information contained herein continuously.  Also, I don't read
soc.culture.turkish regularly, so don't count on me to automatically
update any changes that might apply in your opinion.  If you notice
that something does not apply, is missing, or has changed, please let me
know so that I can update it.  A detailed list of most recent changes
are listed at the end of this document.

SKYTREK ............. 1-613-829-3300 (Ottowa - Leyla Baran)

-> Can I take one or more camera/camcorder/laptop to Turkiye?

Yes, but according to law, those should be recorded to your passport
at the time of your entrance and they should be checked upon leaving.
Usually, the customs officer do not create problems for a single
camera/camcorder etc. However, it is a good practice to register
them, especially when you have more than one. (..be advised that like
most customs officers, they do not care whether you miss your plane or
not..)

-> Does my <insert any electrical device here> work in Turkiye?

220 volts, 50 Hz. is used in TR instead of the 120 volts, 60 Hz.
used in North America. If your device does not mind frequency, it is
easy to make it work in TR by the help of an inexpensive transformer.

In particular, you may use the small transformers sold at Radio Shack
for low-energy consumption (less than 50 watts) devices. If you would
like to take a stereo (amplifier, tape deck, tuner etc.), you should buy
a powerful  220v.-120v. transformer (preferably from TR, not to
carry this heavy thing with you). The amplifier, CD player, tape deck
mostly do not create problems. Tuners, on the other hand, has the
problem of different frequency spacings of radio stations in the US: AM
spacing is 9 kHz instead of 10 kHz and FM spacing is 100 kHz instead of
200 kHz in TR. This means you may not tune AM stations accurately
in TR. Finally, some turntables, which controls the pitch with the
power supply frequency may create problems: you can adjust the speed
manually in many of them, but if this fails, the RPM drops to 5/6 of the
origin.

-> How can I have a long distance call from Turkiye? (Information about AT&T
     and MCI provided by Ibrahim Semiz)

There are public phones available for this purpose. You need to purchase
some tokens from PTT (Turkish Post/Telegraph/Telephone Company). One
token is on the order of $1 and you probably need a few for a single call.
The long distance code for TR is 90.

  But the most practical way make international calls from TR (or almost
any country for that matter) is to use your calling card. For example,
AT&T has services called `USA Direct' and `World Connect', where you
dial 99 80 01 22 77 (99 80 01 44 77 for US Sprint) from any phone in TR,
and get connected to AT&T. If you are calling a number in the US, you
can place your call yourself, assisted by English voice prompts. If you
want to call one of the 46 (at last count) countries on AT&T's list, you
wait for an operator who assists you (Presumably, such calls would be
more expensive). If you are calling from a residence, your host does not
get charged anything, or you can make the call from any pay phone with a
local (`small') token. Of course, you get the bill from AT&T. This is
cheaper than calling from a residence (in TR). I don't know how it
compares to calling from public phones with tokens, but it probably is
cheaper, and you don't have to struggle to feed tokens to the thing at
the rate ! of one every thirty seconds.

  MCI has a similiar service, on which somebody else may supply details.


-> How can I call TR collect from the US? (800 numbers)
   (by Metin mgokcen@us.oracle.com and Zafer Latif

   1-800-VATANIM (1-800-828-2646) via PTT

-> New area codes for dialing to Turkiye.

[Maintainer's Note:  I would like to express my sincere and special thanks
                     to Mr Orhan GOkCol (UCGOKCOL.TRITU.Bitnet) for
                     going thru the effort of sending me the list of the
                     new codes and changes from TR with fax and
                     postal mail.  He made it possible to have detailed
                     information about the area code changes, affected
                     cities, and the changes relating to each city.  Thank
you!
]

The area codes for the cities in TR have changed. Calls to another area
code in TR start with a '0', and international calls start with '00'.
All phone numbers are 7 digits now.  The following is a known list of
new area codes and a summary of changes for each city.  In changing the
phone numbers to 7 digits, a number of digits have been inserted in
front of the original phone number explained in the comments part of the
table below.

-> What beverages are available? (from Ian Davis, summary of responses
     he received to his survey)

Beer:
 - Efes Pilsen, most people say that this is the best.
 - Tuborg (originally Danish)
 - Tekel, pure Turkish but may not be found in Tourist resorts.

Soft Drinks:
Ayran, sIra, kIzIlcIk, seftali - totally different than anything
   available in UK.

Wine:
much better than beer, including KavaklIdere, Villa Doluca.
   Both red and white are good.


-> Ionian Coast Info (from Ian Davis, summary of responses
     he received to his survey)

Shopping:
Bodrum is one of the most expensive towns to shop in (40% more expensive
than Istanbul).Buying anything must bargin until the shop keeper gives up.
 If you are looking for more expensive souvenirs, its worth while traveling
to other less well know towns in the area.

The castle in Bodrum ( rebuilt by the knights of St John) is worth a visit.

Troy- the famous city is within traveling distance of Bodrum, mostly ruined
but still worth a visit.

Bergama-site of one of the seven original churches mentioned in the bible.
Has nice amphitheater,some pillars still standing, nice arches and a few
mosiacs
Efes-site of another one of the seven churches,Paul lived here.  Is very
well
preserved, very good amphitheater, a library, roads of marble and is said
to be a very exceptional site, comes highly recommended.

These places are only the tip of the iceberg.

[Language]
TURKISH LANGUAGE ...........................................................

-> What is the origin of Turkish?

Turkish is an Ural-Altaic language, which is spoken in different forms from
Balkans in the west to China and Siberia in the east. Approximately 150
million people speak Turkish in the world.

There are four main dialects of Turkish (according to Colloquial
Turkish - Y. Mardin):
a) Oriental dialects of Altay
b) Western dialects of Kirgiz and Tatar
c) Dialects of Central Asia
d) Southern dialects: Turkmen, Azerbeycan, Anadolu, Kirim and Osmanli
Turkcesi.

-> Is Turkish a hard-to-learn language?

Yusuf Mardin answers this question as follows:
"Turkish is an easy, logical language. There is no gender, no he, she or it,
but one word for all three."
"In Turkish, there are no diphtongs. When two vowels come together, each
retains its individual sound. Every letter in every word is sounded
individually and every word is pronounced as it is written."

[maintainer's note: we need to refine this section, please e-mail any
                    suggestions.
]

-> Which alphabet do people use in Turkiye?

Latin alphabet with some modifications. There are 6 extra letters:
                         _
    c   i(without dot)   g    "o    s    "u
    '                               '
q, w, x does not exist in Turkish alphabet.

[maintainer's note:  Recently, a new Turkic alphabet was agreed upon, and
there
                     are new letters which contradict the statement above.
                     An update will follow.
]

-> How can I use Turkish alphabet in Wordperfect/Mac/TeX?

Wordperfect has a Turkish keyboard file which can be used to generate
Turkish letters by the help of Cntrl-Alt keys.  For Mac, there is a
Turkish Mac System and Turkish fonts.  All of those can be found at
ftp.cs.umn.edu under the directory /pub/users/cosar for anonymous ftp
(Username ftp).  There is also a Tex style file, easyturkish.sty which
generates Turkish letters for Tex document preparing system.  You may
contact akgul@trbilun.bitnet for Turkish Tex and easyturkish.sty.
Turkish fonts also do exist in several sites for ftp; you may try,
host:kth.se directory:/kth/tex/stuttgart/fonts/metafont or host:
utsun.s.u-tokyo.ac.jp directory:/TeX/fonts for anonymous ftp.

-> Additional font info for DOS/Windows.                    (by Mustafa
Soysal)

Other than the above mentioned Turkish fonts provided for ftp by Ahmet
CoSar at the University of Minnesota. Bora Baysal at the Catholic
University of America provided general information on a commercialy
distributed font package he can provide you with.  The information about
the packages is included below.  For detailed information about the
current package contents, please contact the provided contact e-mail
addresses.

Font info by Bora Baysal
------------------------
TurkFontPack is a Turkish font pack which currently includes 10 Turkish
fonts (including all Turkish characters and English characters),
Mac version of the package for system 6 or 7, and a freeware Windows
program in order to type Turkish characters on standard non-Turkish
keyboards, using two-key sequences. The fonts are in various font
formats which are  PostScript Type 1, TrueType, bitmap, Unix, and
Encapsulated  PostScript. For additional info, please contact Bora
Baysal via e-mail at bora@universe.digex.net

-> Are there any books to learn Turkish?

Yes, we even have an online tutor. The online tutor/teacher (for pc) is
available at wuarchive.wustl.edu or other simtel20 mirrors under the
directory /mirrors/msdos/langtutor/turkish1.lzh. We did not try it, so
we do not have any idea about its completeness, usefulness etc. The
books that might be used to learn Turkish are:

- "Colloquial Turkish", Yusuf Mardin, London Routledge (several editions
  exist, some include a tape.)

- "Colloquial Turkish", Arin Bayraktaroglu & Sinan Bayraktaroglu,
  Routledge, 1992 (Available with cassette).

- "Turkish in Three Months", Bengisu Rana, Hugo's Language Books Ltd., 1989
  (Available with cassette)

- "Turkish Basic Course" (2 volumes), Lloyd B. Swift, Selman Agrali, 1966,
  State Dept. Series (can be found in libraries, elemantary/intermediate
level)

- "Yabancilar icin Turkce Dersleri", Kaya Can, Middle East Technical
  University, Ankara, 1981

- "Turkish", Paul Wittek, London, 1956

The following books include Turkish stories and poems:

- "Turkish Sampler: Writings for all readers", Muge Galin, Indiana Universit
y
  Turkish Studies, 1989

- "Turkish Literary Reader", Andreas Tietze, Indiana University, 1963

- "An Anthology of Turkish Short Stories", Editor: Ali Alparslan,
Publications
  of rge RCD Cultural Institute No:45, Istanbul, 1973

And about dictionaries:
  (by Jack Campin)
  By FAR the best portable dictionary is one you can only get in TR - the
  Berlitz/ABC Kitabevi "Ingilizce-Turkce/Turkce-Ingilizce Sozluk", 1988
(ISBN
  975 09 0150 9).  It suffers from the usual problem in Berlitz materials of
  not giving you any even remotely naughty words - god help you if you have
  to explain a gynaecological problem with it - but it's wonderful on food
  terms.  About A6-sized, bright red.  If it's out of print, the Redhouse
  Elsozlugu is a reasonable substitute.[It is not out of print, I checked
  it--ahmet]

  For a big dictionary, the Oxford two-volume one (also published cheaper
  by ABC in TR, in an edition that may only be sold there) is hard to
  beat, though the Redhouse Cagdas Turkce-Ingilizce Sozluk is just as good
  (one way only).  You may have problems getting that in the US.  The Oxford
  is also available in a one-volume abridgment.

-> Is there a list of colleges offering Turkish classes?     (by Ahmet
Toprak)

There seems to be at least 4 colleges/schools that offer Turkish classes.

- University of California Berkeley, Near Eastern Studies Department
- Turkish Community School, SF Bay Area, Principle: G. Tinaztepe (415)
341-4390

For mail access to EARN/BITNET nodes from internet, append .bitnet to
the node name.  If that doesn't work, then use the TREARN gateway in
Turkey, vm.ege.edu.tr.  That is, the address would look like
user%TRNODE.BITNET@vm.ege.edu.tr

Recently, a number of the bitnet nodes converted to internet and
disappeared for good.  A list of available internet domains can be found

-> Is there any electronic mail list for discussions related to Turkish
   people/culture etc.?

Yes, there are plenty, and the list below does not claim to be complete,
however, the most important ones should be covered by these.   We will
not express a preference for this or that list, try them out to find the
ones that suit your taste.

However, The 'haberler' list at trmetu.bitnet and Turkish Radio Hour
News List (trknws-l) and are important for keeping up with the recent
news and therefore should be mentioned here.  The 'haberler'
subscription is free, and trknws-l subscription via e-mail costs
$10/year.  'haberler' can be subscribed to just like the other listserv
distribution lists as mentioned below.  For trknws-l, you have to send a
request to hq.ggg@forsythe.stanford.edu instead of a listserv address
for subscription and more information.

Also, please note that Mcimail is offering a special e-mail subscription
under TURKNEWS grouprate.  The first year costs $15, and $25 thereafter.
Contact Bret Fisherkeller or Terri Malone at (510) 945-0491 for details
on the TURKNEWS group rate. You need a modem, a computer with
communications software or a terminal to use this service.  Access is
available by calling an 800 number.

Archive-name: auto/soc.culture.turkish/Turkish-Poetry-in-ftp-cs-umn-edu

There is a new directory in ftp.cs.umn.edu named
"/pub/users/cosar/literature"
where you can find about 70 Turkish Poems, some as English translations.
If you have any more Turkish Poetry/Story ready in electronic form
please mail them to cosar@mail.cs.umn.edu to be added to the archive
for public benefit.

I also put an older list of Turkish Student Associations to the archive
but it's not publicly readable since it might be considered private
information. If you send me an e-mail asking for a specific University's
Turkish Student Association I can mail you the contact address of the
person in charge or forward your request to them if an e-mail address
is available.
