That list is hilarious!


You've actually learned a new word. Karpuzi is the Greek word for melon too. So go congratulate yourself! Here in Cairo, they had really nice mini-melons earlier in the summer. I love melon, but I'm too lazy to cut it up myself.


Not just Turkic--Tajikistan also produces a fine kharbuza. I want to bring a crate back to the US.

You didn't make up the word but did spell it wrong. Should be 'Karpuzcu' - didn't they do vowel harmony yet on that Turkish course you're doing? Or does that come in at Level 3?


Pat, I think you now see the problem.


Arbuzy in Russian. And also Lithuanian I think.
