My name

less than 1 minute read


My name is written as Aydoğan Yanılmaz in Turkish orthography. In IPA terms, it is pronounced as [ajdo(ɰ)ɑn janɯlmaz] in standard Turkish. However, I grew up being called [ajdoɣan] in my local dialect spoken in Adıyaman. Of course after moving to the US, I heard quite different varieties of my name, most incredible of which was [a:dəwa:].
