Turkish-German dictionary

Learning German – a real challenge

Just as learning Turkish represents a challenging task for any learner, learning German of course means a number of challenges for native speakers of Turkish, given that word order, sentence formation and some letters are quite different to Turkish. There is also no vowel harmony in German as with Turkish. This means that, in German, both front vowels such as e, i, ö, ü and back vowels such as a, ı, o, u collide with one another. Moreover, vowels and consonants do not consistently alternate in German, making pronunciation something that needs getting used to in the beginning for some Turkish native speakers. But this Turkish-German dictionary will help when looking up German words, and with its numerous entries for both languages and the appropriate translations it offers quick assistance when understanding and applying the language.

Turkish and German – many differences

In Turkish, there are no complicated articles such as der, die, das. The use of capital letters and lower-case letters is also much more straightforward in Turkish; everything is written in lower-case with the exception of proper names. The verb is always at the end of the sentence. Word order in Turkish therefore follows the subject-object-verb pattern, in contrast to German. Turkish therefore doesn't use prepositions but rather postpositions. This is evident in the clause “with my friend”. In German, the preposition “with” is positioned before the object. In Turkish, by contrast it is “arkadaş-ım-la”. The suffix “-la” means “with” and is positioned after the object. It becomes clear that German and Turkish differ from one another in many small details in terms of grammatical structure, but with regular training even these hurdles can be overcome.
