If you have read the material pinned above to define the Turkish 'u', now you can read the following words..The wovel 'o' accompanies 'u' in many words. I think the 'o' in 'north' is good enough to give a right idea about the Turkish 'o'. Please, however, always try to say it shortly: even the 'o' of north is a bit long.Koyun: sheepOyun: game, play (oynamak:1-to play 2- to dance, in particular folkloric dance)Boyun: neckDoyum: satisfaction (doymak: to get satisfied)Konuk: guest (konmak 1- for a bird or plane, to land 2- for a nomad, to stop and settle temporarily)Donuk: 1- opaque 2- frozen (donmak: to get frozen)Topuk: heel (top: ball)Oluk: an open pipe, like those on the roofs for rain water drainageOyuk: 1- carved 2- having cavity or hollow (oymak: to carve)Ufuk: horizonUmut: hope (ümit is also used)Uzun: longSulu: 1- watery 2-including waterBuluş: innovation (icat is also used) (bulmak: to find)
