Why did you change the name of Constantinople?
In fact, the name Istanbul was introduced 7 years after the establishment of the Republic of Turkey. They used to call it Konstantiniyye (Constantinopole in Ottoman). Also the etimology of the word istanbul is greek. εἰς τὴν Πόλιν (is tin polin). It means 'to the city'
Hmmmm... 🤔I guess you can keep the name... 😉
I don't really know what do turks think about it, I'm Armenian.
Ah, nice! 👌🏻
@mladasrpska you're right. Name of İstanbul comes from Stinpolis and it means "to the city". The pronunciation has changed in time. Finally its name became İstanbul.
Because constantinopole is greek name.We are not greeks why should we use that name?
Have an opinion?
I am already from Turkey
Selam o zaman 😅
merak etmiyorum :D
Ahahaha pekiiiiiii napalım ingilizce geliştireyim diye geldim bizimkiler burayı da basmış 😜
haha canını sıkma, ingilizce de konuşabiliyoruz sonuçta :Dlets do some practice
I can't speak well. Of course i can express myself but i'm dissatisfied with my language level. By the way i'm also engineer and i need high level English skills.
Yeah I can understand you. Well to be honest no matter what your job is, all people have to learn and speak English nowadays. :)Your English doesn't seem to be so bad though, so you just need to be confident, and practice speaking English.
You're right but English is must for us especially when make a literature review. I've been going a speaking club for nearly 2 months. I noticed that i can understand when i read or listen something, but i have a problem about express myself. I can't create totally correct sentences. So i'm trying to do this now.
Yeah i understand. All people who learnt English have been through the way you are having now. So by time goes, you will be able to speak, and understand it better, by the way if you follow me i can message you
But i can't send a message because of my xper level 😅
Dont worry, you will be able to now :-D
why do you deny armenian genocide?
Its Turkish genocide, not Armenian..Your people tell you like Turks killed Armenians. But it was Armenians who wanted to create trouble for Ottoman, and wanted to create their country here.. So we had to protect ourselves. so most people say its Armenian genocide. So we just should have waited for you to kill us without doing anything?by the way I am Turk, I like all people.. no matter Armenian, or Israel anything. I just support rightfulness. I dont like people who are not like that. You see Israel attack Palestine... There was a problem between Armenia and Azerbajcan too..I just support the one who is right, not the one who is rich.I hope the peace for the world. But since there are bad, rapacious people in the world, it seems not easy.
@Engineer__ Eastern Anatolia was Armenian for years, you were the one who invade and stole our lands. There was no such thing as Turkish genocide, I suggest you investigate from an objective source, not from a turkish biased one. I do know commander enver pasha as well. He was an instigator of the Armenian Genocide
Well we shouldn't have hate because of our past.I know most informations u can find on internet says its Armenian genocide..but i believe its not.Our country was planned to be shared before , by Armenians, English, French, Italian etc..But it didn't work. And we won't let it happen.I want peace, but if we have to protect ourselves, of course we will do.And in Ottoman, there were many nation, Armenian too, and they were faithful. But while Ottoman was in their "period of regression", Armenians gave up being faithful, and wanted to be with other countries which wanted to divide our country.In eastern in ottoman, there were more Turks than Armenians. And they didn't follow the agreement, so they attacked us.we had to protect us, thats why we killed you more than you killed us, so its named as Armenian genocide, but its such a lie.
@Engineer__ you say that we lived under peace together but my ancsetors had to convert islam to stay alive. there are 40.000 armenians in turkey now you can ask them.
no, im sure they lied about that. Because in ottoman, they haven't forced anyone to join their religion. They all respected no matter if they are christian, jewish or another. They just wanted peace.But Armenians were fooled by other nations such as British, French at that time, to share our country and get ground... just like Kurds now, those nations play with them just as they did to Armenians before, in the world war 1.And that time they had an agreement about Easter in ottoman, whoever were more, they had to move. They counted and Turks were more than Armenians, so i think they moved to nowadays Armenia at that time, other ones who didn't follow them, and attacked us, were killed because we had to protect ourselves.I know like that but since other nations dont like Turks, they know they can't fool us, they still want to share our ground, and they say it was Armenian genocide...We dont have to fight tho. No matter if you are Armenian. It doesn't mean I hate you. We just had bad moments in past, but we werent living at that time. So i dont have hate.I still wish for peace for whole the world.But other nations, English, french americans etc wouldn't want peace:)
by saying "fooled", i meant "convinced". so I didn't want to be rude
If you dont wanna get killed then you shouldn't revolt us in first place.We are not gonna pay for defending ourselfs against armenian terror.
Big fish eats small fish deal with it. This is how the world works.If you dont wanna get invaded then you should fought harder.
