With regards to my "Turkishness" or "Greekness", I really don't know, my father grew up speaking Greek to Christian parents, but my surname seems to derive from a region in Turkey and my oldest ancestor, as far back as we can trace, was a iannisseri. I speak neither Turkish nor Greek fluently, but have learned some formal structured vocabulary and phrases of both from the internet. My dream is to speak naturally, but I believe that will take some tuning.

With regards to AKEL in the north as an oxymoron, I see the point about not wishing to recognise the illegal pseudo-elections. However, Sinn Fein used to stand in the elections for the British parliament and not take their seats when they won, in effect not recognising them, whilst proving their support. Also, are there MPs representing the occupied regions in the RoC? What is to stop AKEL (or any other party for that matter) contesting for representing those in the North, with the actual voting taking place in the free part of the country (Nicosia for example)? Forgive my ignorance on these matters, but it seems to me that as Cypriots we could be doing more to organise in a united way, ignoring the artificial partition, and bringing such organisation under a single structure would do much to facilitate this.

Once again, I normally shun comparisons with Ireland, but the following article shows the progress that is being made: http://www.politics.co.uk/comment-analysis/2017/03/17/it-s-now-clear-northern-ireland-is-leaving-the-union

i once met somebody with the surname of kahramoglu. i could not resist and if she new what it meant. she did not and she was from greece. it actualy means the son of a brave. any greek name with oglu at the end of it is derrived from terggish.

Similarly the Turks cannot pronounce words starting with 2 consonants hence they add an i. eg General Ivlahopoulos

=General Vlahopoulos [Στρατηγος Βλαχοπουλος]

correct reh vlammene? :lol: :lol:
