About the Turkish Alphabet

Mustafa Kemal Publicly Teaching the Roman Alphabet in 1928

The Turkish Alphabet was changed from
Ottoman script to a Latin based script soon after the Turkish Republic
was declared. Ottoman script was based on the Arabic alphabetic script
but this did not adequately cover the phonetics of Turkish. Kemal
****** intoduced the new latin alphabet almost overnight.
Turkish does not as a rule allow two vowels to occur together -
there are exceptions of course - but mostly in foreign imported words.
Therefore as there are no diphthongs then whenever two vowels occur
together, they are each pronounced as a separate sound.
The letter -Y- is considered as a consonant in Turkish, and it is widely used as a buffer consonant to keep vowels apart during word building.
