The firman of 13 May 1277 quoted in this article is suspect. The date is plausible, but the reference to “parliament” is anachronistic. Can we find a more authoritative source for the quote? Aramgar 13:14, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

I understand that in his capacity as the vezir to the pretender Jimri, Karamanoğlu Mehmet Bey instituted the use of the Turkish language in the chancellory; but this anachronistic quote must be sourced or removed. Aramgar (talk) 03:35, 26 December 2007 (UTC)

Turkish Language???Edit

how is it possible to use a language that majority cannot speak? It was not Turkish but Oguz(as the speakers name their language and nation) and until Mehmet II of ottomans brought some uighur translators from bukhara almost no one was able to speak Turkish, what today we call Chagatay Turkish. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:26, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

Above remark is groundless. Oghuz is a branch of Turkic, just as Uighur. Mehmet bey did not impose a language. (By the way he was controlling only a small portion of Turkey and he didn't live long after his firman) People in Turkey was already speaking Turkish and his firman had nothing to do with the native language. He only tried to regulate the palace language which was Persian. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 07:47, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

Kim KimdirEdit

Kim Kimdir is not reliable source. Takabeg (talk) 23:05, 16 June 2011 (UTC)


We have to note there are many Mehmed Beg/Beys in Anatolian Principalities. Results includes other Mehmed Beg/Beys.

These results includes other Karamanid Mehmed Beg (Mehmet II of Karaman[citation needed])... Takabeg (talk) 18:42, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

Title and textEdit

The title of this article is about a person. But the content is about language . I think the title should be moved to more appropriate name or else the text should be rewritten. I'll try to reach the contributers. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 08:38, 13 November 2012 (UTC)
