Assertion, unsupported by fact, is nugatory. Surmise and general abuse, in however elegant language, ought not to pass for truth. Junius


The Turkish Connection

The Upper Canadian has gone world-wide. Or at least to Turkey. Seems this page has been linked to Hakan Uygun Yaz─▒yor, out of Istanbul. Since I can barely speak English, let alone Turkish, with its exotic dipthongs and umlauts, I have no idea why.

Growing up being taught some French that never took, I was used to seeing accents on letters. Even so, Turkish always seemed absolutely decadent to me, with its willingness to lavish several different accents on just about any letter, even putting cedilles on an s! You'll never convince me that they haven't just adopted them for ornamental use.
