Did you know that there isn't any word in the Turkish language that starts with Ğ (yumuşak g)  it either comes in the middle of the sentence or at the end of the sentence? In this lesson, I will explain the four ways to pronounce the Ğ.

When it comes between the two vowels e and i such as in:
  • eğer pronounced eyer
  • meğer pronounced meyer
  • değer pronounced deyer
