Nah & Na


Türkler ve Yunanların sinirlenince yaptıkları bir kaç ortak nokta var. Sinire sinirle karşılık vermek bunlardan biri. Nihayetinde konuyu bağlamak için yapılan el hareketi benzemese de bu hareketi yaparken çıkartılan ses aynı. Nah / Na; yani Yunancadan ‘burada, al işte’

Turkish hand version of ‘Na’. Even they look quite different you combine them with the same sound. ‘Nah/Na’


There are common things that Turks and Greeks do when they get angry. One of them is to reply anger with anger. The other one is to finallize the conversation with a hand move and say ‘Nah’ in Turkish and ‘Na’ in Greek. The word is Greek origined and means ‘There you go/Here it is’.

Moutza (sound like Muca in Turkish). You do the action and say ‘Na’ (Here it is !)

Greek Commercial of Aegean Airlines. It says ‘More Greeks are traveling to London now’…

M: Go on, zontovolo, move it! You closed the road. We have a meeting, get through with it.
W: Who are you call zontovolo, re! Old-chimpanzee, Neanderthal man, they just gave you the steering-wheel in the opposite side and you messed your legs (ie you messed everything up), stucco (ie very dumb).
M: Get lost or I ‘ll run over you.
W: What else can I tell you, what else, Na!
M: Come on my girl I have a meeting to catch. It’s morning, the day begins, we will wait for you?

And the highly well educated Turkish high school kids are having fun in WC.
