Turkish 101: Some phrases Anderson Cooper might need

The language barrier is always a problem, but we know AC is smart so he might already know this ones... and I truly hope he has the opportunity of using them!


Hello! - Merhaba!

I'm pleased to meet you. - Memnun oldum.

When is the news? Haberler nasıl?

Journalist gazeteci

News haberler

You are so kind. - Çok naziksiniz.

You are so cute. - Çok şekersin.

You are so gentle. - Çok naziksin.

I fell in love with you.- Sana aşık oldum.

I can't live without you.-Sensiz yaşayamam.
Sensiz yapamam.

We feel so good together. Let's make a family. Birbirimizle çok mutluyuz. Haydi bir aile kuralım.

All I pray to God is you saying "Yes!" Allah'tan tek dileğim bana "Evet!" demen.

Christiane,
Perhaps you could issue a "spew warning" before posting an aritcle like this so that the reader may clear his/her mouth of liquids/food before reading. :)

The last two lines nearly had me choking on my iced tea! :P

MANIFESTO

Don't think for me. Don't assume what I want to hear or read. Give me facts. Give me reasons. But not yours. Bring me debate. Enlighten me. Today, accountability is masked behind anonymity; bylines are hidden by zeros and ones. Everyone publishes; everyone is "in the know." Ethics are non-existent. Speculation is king. The truth is masked and a hostage. Empowered by our minds, WE ARE THE FREAKSPEAKERS!
