The Turkish Alphabet

The Turkish Alphabet uses a modified version of the Latin Alphabet. There are 29 letters in the Turkish Alphabet. Each individual letter spelling in the Turkish alphabet, is almost always spelled the same way when inside a word. Certain exceptions are extremely rare and only seen in some examples of spoken Turkish.

Pronunciation of the Turkish Letters

Listen to the audio recording of each letter while looking at the below table. Try to imitate the pronunciation yourself. Another good way to check whether your pronunciation of a letter is correct or not is by using Google Translate. Simply copy and paste the word, select “Turkish” from the language detection and later click on the listen icon. While this may not be a good method for checking the pronunciation of long sentences, it is more than enough for single words.

  1. The individual spelling is “ke”. Depending on the word we have a light K : ke and a dark K: ka. If the letter is at the end of the word its spelled as “ka” otherwise its spelled as “ke”.
