Project shows Turkish people’s distance from native minority languages

A trailer for an EU-backed project reveals just how distant Turkish speakers are from the Armenian, Greek, Ladino (Judeo-Spanish) and Syriac languages native to the country.The trailer shows volunteer participants trying to guess languages they are listening to on headphones, with many voicing regret that they cannot distinguish between them.The project under the motto “Bridging the gap, building together a common future” by Rumvader, an association of Turkey’s minority Greek community, is supported by the Greek, Armenian, Sephardi and Syriac communities.
