Pronunciation of TürkçeEdit

I've just created Talk:Turkish language § Pronunciation of Türkçe:

The Turkish word for the Turkish language is Türkçe, as given in the second cell of the infobox of Turkish language. The next cell gives its pronunciation in IPA and a link to a sound file,
Commons:File:Turkce.ogg: [ˈtyɾctʃe] ( listen).
That file's Description is
Audio recording of "Turkish" (Türkçe, IPA: [tyɾktʃe]) in Turkish. Recorded and uploaded by Atilim Gunes Baydin (native speaker).
Note the difference: the letter k pronounced in the infobox as the unvoiced palatal stop [c], and in the file description as the unvoiced velar stop [k]. ("[c]" here is the IPA symbol, not the Turkish letter.) The difference, probably due to palatalization of /k/ before the palatal affricate /tʃ/, may be insignificant or may not be. I don't know enough about Turkish to tell; we need an expert here. --Thnidu (talk) 01:56, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

seeking relevance for deleted paragraphEdit

I've deleted a paragraph from Spoonmaker's Diamond as having no apparent bearing on the subject, and pasted it into my talk page comment Talk:Spoonmaker's Diamond#Dr. Ortayli was in that symposium; so what? in case someone can make it work. Please see that comment for details. --Thnidu (talk) 23:39, 2 August 2019 (UTC)

Help expand Bülent Şık for DYKEdit

I created an article for him, but most sources I see are in Turkish. A little more expansion and this should be eligible for a DYK. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 05:07, 1 October 2019 (UTC)
