Türkiye

Character MapImage via WikipediaFirst, I want to say Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow American bloggers and readers. :)

Second, I have a confession to make:

I've been calling it Turkey, partly because that's what most people call it and partly because I'm lazy and I hate to open the character map every time I need a weird letter. (Many words in my posts are probably incorrect due to reason number two.) But on Turkey day I feel the need to clarify.

The official name of the country is Türkiye, not Turkey.

Enjoy your bird!

Happy Thanksgiving to you too!!!!!

And thank you for this info!!! I think Turkiye is a superb name - it's says Nation with a touch of the Exotic! Take care

The fact about the character map is pretty interesting to read and also good to read that you have readers from America.

I do try to remember to say Türkiye...but sometimes I forget. If I use Turkey in blog posts its because I think most people won't realise it's Türkiye...thanks for the reminder!
