English-Turkish Cognates

A friend of a friend of mine goes to a hardware store to buy a screw plug while studying at university in Austria. But he doesn’t know the equivalent of screw plug in German, and he tries to describe it by acting. ‘Aha! You want a ‘dübel.’ says the hardware guy. Guess what? The equivalent of German word ‘dübel’ is also ‘dübel’ in Turkish. My friend's friend is shocked. There are lots of words that can be found in both English and in Turkish. You can download a glossary of those words at…/Turkish-language-English-Turkish-co…. If you don’t have such an acting talent, you had better learn those words.
