Are there similarities between Turkic languages and Chinese&Japanese?

(Ignore my bad English lol)

Today, I will handle an unexpected subject from this blog.  (Yes,really :'>) By the way, I like linguistics' ethimologic part. Therefore, I will write an article~  I didn't want to handle a language which isn't close to me.  When it comes to ethimology, I need to use historical and cultural facts as well as languages.  So, I tried to choose familiar subjects to me ^^;;
          Hence, I am going to write about similarities between Turkic languages and Japanese + Chinese ( if it exists..) 
      I am starting with this map;

I'll handle Altaic part of the map.

Yes. . . There is no Chinese, right? Actually Japanese is not in its right place in this map too..But I mentioned. Then, I must explain you. 
It will be more than an explanation because I'll show the subject on maps.
 I couldn't find any good maps I want to use, hence I used my own.

(I translated the essential parts of the maps ^^;) Well, you are seeing first civilizations of the world in this picture. China is one of them. (If you wonder, no, Anatolia wasn't the place where Turks from.)

You are seeing Huns here. But who are they?
Huns (Or Hun Turks) are known as nomadic tribes which invaded The Roman Empire and "Tribal Migration". They occurred from several Asian ethnic groups. (Ogurs, Tungus, Mongols, including Scythian and Sarmatian and communities of nomadic Turkish tribes with Chinese tribes) 

Huns invaded from Chinese people and Turks formed Celestial Turk State. 
There was Han Dynasty . (China) after than Han Dynasty, Tang Dynasty was formed. 

Last map! My history lesson is over here :'D Yes..And you are seeing The Great Wall of China in this picture. Chinese common people, criminals and soldiers built it to protect people and territory from invasion. Well, this map definitely evinces the origin of attacks . 


(Time to talk about languages, finally. I want to write this here, Ural-Altaic languages' personal pronouns have no gender. Because of SOV sequence Korean and Japanese are thought as Altaic languages too but in real they have their own language groups. )

Turkic languages have passed into Persian, Hindustani, Russian, Chinese and to a lesser extent, Arabic. 
I mean, Turkish language is originating from central Asia, not Turkey. It is relevant to Chinese and Japanese. 

        Japanese and Turkish are both agglutinating languages. This means that suffixes are added to the verb stem unchanged to mark characteristics such as tense, subject and interrogation. Chinese is an isolating language in which each morpheme is a separate word. (English is called an Inflectional language.)
          Turkish—along with Mongolian and many others—is in the same language family according to a highly controversial linguistic theory (Ural-Altaic Languages). Japanese and Korean are different but they are very similar to altaic ones.What makes some linguists think in this way is mostly the grammars. So, there are many similarities in Japanese and Turkish grammars. 

          Through the years, Japan borrowed some linguistic aspects from Chinese: mostly some loan words and part of its writing system. The Japanese writing system uses the Chinese character (Kanji) for the meaning of words, such as verbs, then adds Japanese elements, called kana, to indicate the verb suffixes necessary for an agglutinating language. The pronunciation of the word may be historically Japanese, or use a modified version of the word from one of the Chinese dialects. 

           Chinese pronunciation and especially the notorious tones are really hard to grasp for most Chinese learners around the world; learning and mastering tones is the hardest part of learning Chinese. 

·         Compared to Chinese and English, Turkish pronunciation would be easier for Japanese. As a Turkish native speaker, I think Japanese is the easiest language in terms of pronounciation. I don't even need to try to pronounce Japanese, the sounds just come out in the right way.
      Overall, it appears that Japanese and Turkish are related, but that Japanese has borrowed things from Chinese. This is very similar to how English and German are related, but English has borrowed things from French/Latin.

     Now, I am giving you some examples..

First, Chinese.


"You really want to with me walk/go QP?" (Chinese word order) 

"You really with me walk/go want to QP?" (Turkish word order)

"Do you really want to walk/go with me?" (English word order)

*QP: question particle

As you can see, the only difference between Chinese and Turkish is the place of the verb. Moreover, the question particle for yes and no sentences in both Chinese and Turkish has the same usage and similar sounds. "ma" in Chinese, "mı, mi, mu, mü" in Turkish. The vowel after "m" changes-depending on the vowel in the last syllable before the question particle-to maintain the sound harmony. In this example the QP (question particle) is "mu".

爸爸 ( baba / bàba ) chinese
It means "father"  and its meaning is same in Turkish too.

月(tsuki, getsu) japanese
(yuè)  chinese

It may be an interesting fact that  in Chinese, Japanese and in Turkish, "month" and "moon" are the same word. The reason for that is probably the use of "moon calendar". Its Turkish meaning is "ay".


水 (mizu) japanese
(shuǐ) chinese

The letter means "water"
Its meaning is "su" is Turkish, some  sources say that it is relevant with Chinese . (I don't know if it is true though.)

茶 (cha) japanese
(chá) chinese
(çay) turkish (ç = ch)

No comments

Now, Japanese.

I said "... suffixes are added to the verb stem unchanged to mark characteristics such as tense, subject and interrogation." Also the rule is same;
 a subject–object–verb (SOV) 


 Doko e ikimasu ka? (Japanese)

Nere-y-e gidiyorsun? (Turkish)

Where are you going? (English)

The "y" is mainstreaming letter, so dative cases are same in both languages. But Japanese use "へ" (he) when they write. And also it can be "-a" in Turkish because the vowel after "m" changes-depending on the vowel in the last syllable before the question particle-to maintain the sound harmony. I wanted to remind it. 


Watashi wa Kobe e ikimashita.     (Japanese)

Ben Kobe'ye gittim/gitmiştim.     (Turkish)

I went to/ had gone to Kobe.     (English)

Also "で" (de) has one same usage in both languages.


Sekai no naka de  (Japanese)

Dünyanın içinde (Turkish)

In the world  (English)

"de" is locative case in this usage. But sometimes "ni" is used in Japanese. You can distinguish it if you learn the rule ^^;

Jp: Kuruma-de
Tr: Araba-da
En: by car

Also it has this meaning. ( When reporting the tool etc. is used. ) But its this usage is valid only for vehicles in Turkish. 

And one more,


Nan desu ka? (Japanese)

Nedir ki?  (Turkish)

What is it?  (English) 

"desu" has no meaning in English but it has the same meaning with the Turkish copula "-dir" .
"ka" is sometimes used as "ki" in Turkish by this.

I also want to add these,

         Turkish "ii" (actually iyi) was edgü in Old Turkic. Therefore Turkish "iyi" can't be compared            to Japanesse "ii".

          Japanese yama(
山) "mountain" is not an equivalent to Turkic tag but in Turkish there is a word yamaç that means "piedmount".

          If Japanese yakimasu (
焼きます)  has "to bake" meaning it still preserves the comparison with Turkic yakmak. ( I suppose...Well, I don't know. ww)

       And I don't know if Japanese kuro (黒) and Turkish "kara" (they both mean "black" ) are relevant. :/ 

      I already write the article about "similarities" , we can't say which word is origin of others' :'>

 Yes, that is all from today. It is late here. ^^;
Thank you!
Teşekkür ederim!

Yeni Oyun : Project Diva X !

Merhaba! Uzun süredir bloğu güncelleyemedim, üzgünüm!! ;A;
Bu yazımda son çıkan Project Diva oyunundan bahsetmek istiyorum (^^) Bildiğiniz üzere Project Diva serisi Sega ve Crypton Future Media şirketlerinin kendi Vocaloid karakterleri için yaptıkları bir oyun serisi.  X'den önceki oyun Project Diva F ve Project Diva F 2 idi. (Yukarıda birkaç F 2nd modülleri var ^^) 
Arcade serisinin grafikleri hoşuma gidiyordu fakat F'in şarkı ve modül seçimleri çok daha iyi. Gerçi F'in grafiklerini de seviyorum.  
Link : Project DIVA F 2nd Opening 

Bugün bahsedeceğimiz oyun son çıkan oyun..Project Diva X!

Oyun Sega ve Crypton Future Media'nın bu yıl (2016) çıkardığı bir ritim oyunu.  Japonya'da PS Vita için olanı 24 Mart'ta satışa çıktı.  PS4 versiyonu bu yaz 25 Ağustos'ta çıkacak.  Kuzey Amerika'da ise ikisi de 30 Ağustos'ta çıkmış olacak. Oyun PD serisinin 10. oyunu. Oyun diğer serilerdeki çoğu şeyi içerse de yeni bir oyun  oynama şekli ele alınmış. "Live and Produce" temasında.

PS Vita kapağı bu şekilde~
PS4 (^^)

            Oyundaki modüller ( karakter tasarımları) on altı sanatçı tarafından tasarladı. Bu isimlerin içinde benim çok sevdiğim Akiakane ve iXima gibi isimler de yer alıyor. Oyunun theme şarkısı " Tsumi no Namae "  ryo tarafından bestelendi. (Yine :') )

Oyun şarkısını oyunun içinde dinlemek için ^^  -->  Tsumi no Namae (PDX)

Modül sayısı 300 tane ve 60 tanesi yeni. Devamı elbette güncellemelerle gelecektir. Şarkı sayısı da 30. 6'sı Medley şarkıları olarak geçiyor. 

Bunlar modüllerin bir kısmı ^^ 

Ve evet..Oyunda Power Rangers kostümleri de var...

Oyunun çıkış tarihi Dance with Devils ve Dead or Alive Xtreme3 serileriyle aynı gün olduğu için, böyle bir resim görmemiz mümkün ;

Project Diva X x Dead or Alive Xtreme3 ! ( owo)

Oyunun nasıl oynanacağını anlatamayacağım çünkü PC versiyonu dışında PD oynamadım. Ama çok eğlenceli olduğundan eminim! (^^)/
Bugünlük bu kadar! Hoşçakalın!

2008-2016 Drawing Memories & Let's draw a simple manga page! ☆

*after 5 months*

Minna, good morning or..whatever :3 
I decided to post something that incluades few introduction of bands/Vocaloid stuffs.
m-i-y-a-k-o-t-a-i-m-u  w w w

   Also, someone asked me if my next articles are in English..? I'll write English because you guys don't know, I've readers from other countries as well. ( Specially from Russia, United States, Germany and Japan) It is the another thing what I couldn't get but..Thank you. :O Then, I'll do it (*^ω^) 

I like drawing and I've drawn since I'm 8! I treasure them.So, each year (2008-2016) has its own file :')

Let's check old ones X'D
Probably it is my first anime drawing :')
Well, probably I was studying proverbs when I was little lolol Powerpuff! ww

They are from my first anime "Sekai no Saigo no Oujo-sama" I still work on this so..I'll post about it soon.This drawing is from 2011

What was I doing omg
   I know they are so creepyy *laughs*  Probably, I started to improve in 2012. . .

From 2012! :3




I wish I could take a video but my camera is not good enough to take so..Please..Nah it! ww

They are the material for page~ You need rulers to draw squares or any precise lines. I also have ruler for circles, it works while I'm drawing speech bubbles! Other materials are..Kuretake ZIG drawing pens and pencil,eraser bla bla :V

They were two pens so I'm going to explain their differences. 01 is thinner than 02 so I use it while I'm drawing details.

Oh yes... First, you should plan the layout of the page. It is messy plan but it works~ You should plan the storyline of the page and place simply. So you won't consider much on page.

You should leave a blank from above. (Mine is 0,5 cm) Do it for sides too. And draw your square.
And complete the other squares as your page layout.

You can see circle ruler's function. Bubbles~
And do not afraid to draw bubbles or any details on lines, it is just a draft! :3

Layout of the page is okay ! Let's draw characters >:3 

The page's draft is okay!! :3 Now, you should pass over the "certain" lines. For example you shouldn't pass over the lines that are in speech bubbles etc. You'll erase them soon. (*^^*)
Oh and..Drawing a clasroom is not that easy. You should know perspective rules! 
For classroom... perspective class room  This video may help you~

Please use the ruler while pass over the certain lines too. ^^


Sadly, scan the page with good quality effects is not that possible, if you don't have a graphics tablet or a good software. Manga Studio EX 5 is great software !! I haven't but I would like to try ^^ I just wanted to share simple hints with amateurs as me ( ;   ;) But..Although you can find better tutorials on YouTube or any website. *sobs*

You can paint only by this way if you don't have enough pens..As you see, it doesn't work. :')


Thank you for reading! <3

I'll come back with my manga projects! "Sekai no Saigo no Oujo-sama" & "Ai no Senritsu"

Bye bye !

From Miyako's Camera ; 2015

Hello everyone~ ( ゚▽゚)/
Long time no see.How are you?
Today, I'll write smth about this summer~ To be honest, 2015's summer was not that great but I went to great places! Although, I'll start in line.

I started with Japanese lessons! This class is JIKAD's class. JIKAD is association in my city. Members all interested in Japanese culture and sometimes they organize activities!

I was sitting in the front row, small but cute class (´`)
For example, this photo from last year. They were origami&Japanese lessons also i got Hiragana stickers too~
By the way...

Soon, Ramadan started. We fast during this month so I stopped activities and went to theaters "every" night.Last week of July, I went to Black Sea Region w/ family!

You can see where is that region.East of my country.This region is veryy veryy green and natural.I'll show (ω) No, I didn't use that red line, I just wanted to show its location.

Here is Abant Lake.Actually, view was looking much better than photo ( ; w ;)
And Safranbolu!

Safranbolu houses has interesting architecture.Today, they used as museum and guest houses.If you'll go there, you can see many Asian tourists! And this region is famous for "saffron" . 

It's the saffron flower ^^ People use this flower as parfume and spice.And to Turkish delights!

Safranbolu has big baazar.You can find traditional stuffs here but I think most interesting things are copper processings! And..Uh..Too hot!! (>__<)

Next stop,Samsun! Statue of Atatürk! He's former of Turkey Repuclic and this statue is present to him as "statue of honor". ^^

Next stop,Trabzon! I loved Trabzon's Maçka district so much! We stayed here!

The hotel's surrounding was quite green.

People grow farmed fishes in that pools.

Bean fields are common here!!
After breakfast, we went to Sumela Monastry!

Along the road, you watch nature :3

Reach to monastry is not easy,you have to walk a bit long way.Also it is good advantage to take photos~ 
And arrived!

First chapel in the world is also here too!

Access hatch of chapel

And walls..That pictures covers wall.Every picture symbolising some of important events of born of Christianity.I think you are wondering "Where are miniatures's faces?" Before conservation, religious rebels tried to destroy chapel's walls.In their opinion "Drawing picture is sin." :/

And this is Atatürk's Mansion's garden~

Here is the mansion~ Beautiful, isn't it? ^^

Oh, I couldn't pass this lake.Its name is "Uzungöl" . Arabic tourists were too crowded,I even thought all tourist were Arabic lol

-Next day-

Noww...One of my favourite place is comingg!!!

Isn't it great! God,I wanna visit there asap!!
Last stop was ...
Our trip to Georgia was daily trip so we visited Batumi.

We passed the border crossing, but it was literally chaos!! It took more than 2 hours! 
Although we arrrived to Batumi~

Apraros Castle.Sadly,we ouldn't enter to castle but what makes it important..Matthias, one of Jesus' 12 apostles' grave in the castle.

Interesting gas station o.o

Poseidon statue!!! (*---*)

Theater and opera hall ^^ Actually Batumi's folk is not rich but this hall shows people's respect to art :)

View of Batumi from cable car...

Batumi is famous for gamble houses,pear juices and hotels. (^^)/ Georgia's currency is "lari".Its name is very similar to our currency, "lira." :D  Many stores,buildings were Turkish.You could speak Turkish here.It made me suprised, I didn't expect it. 
This five-star hotel is popular too.
Well,its mark is "Bakuriani" lolol

Everyone was saying that Batumi looks prettier in the evening but you know it was daily trip so we came to Turkey~ And home~

After trip,I was in my city,İzmir again.

But we spend our time at our summer house.
It is in "Çandarlı". Çandarlı is peninsula.

This photo is not taken by me, I just wanted to show around peninsula. ^^ 

Our beach's view.But you absolutely should see Pissa beach!!

Did you see this blue? (*-*)

Yes..For now,that is all. I hope you had fun and learn smth. Actually i didn't give much info..Already, photos tell everything! ^^ Thanks for your attention!
If you'll come to Turkey, please visit them ^^ 
Good night!
See you next time :)
