Word for the Travel Wise (01/22/06)
Today's word is a Turkish word used in Turkey:
merhaba - hello
Though used throughout Turkey, this word is commonly used in several Arab countries to greet someone as well. Use it before asking about nature's awe-inspiring spectacle and if you should be around during the time use it to say hello to the rare twilight that masks the sky for only a few minutes. After the sun, moon and planet Earth finish their fantasmo light show you might be struck in such a manner to learn every Turkish word under the sun. Prepare ahead of time by visiting this Turkish Class site. Membership is free and you'll get a lot more than some of the basics they already have listed. Online Turkish is good too, but you'll have to register and pay to get anything more than hello, how are you and I love you. Stick to the first site and check out this Turkish vocabulary list of body parts. This is only a hunch, but I have the feeling you'll see several 'isaret parmagi' pointed toward the sky during the eclipse.
