Do You Want to Learn an Agglutinative Language? Think Twice!

Well, my native language is an agglutinative one, Turkish. After taking comparative linguistics courses, I understood why so few people speak Turkish because it is crazy! It is hard to guess why people speak such a hard language; its logic is very complex and confusing. There are hundreds of exceptions which makes it almost impossible to make rules 🙂 When you examine the chart below, you will see what I mean 🙂 Thanks God I am native, otherwise I would have to try hard to learn an agglutinative language!

In this chart, you see a Turkish word “muvaffak” meaning successful. By adding suffixes, you can make a whole sentence out of one word! Adding suffixes  alone is not enough because the vowels and the consonants are also changing according to the vowel or consonant that follow.

I’ve found this on internet, so I do not know who made it. However, I would like to thank the creator.
