      Hi Helen,
      There are many Tatar groups whose language is close to Turkish spoken in Turkey. Crimean Tatars comes to my mind as one of these groups. Also most of the diaspora Tatars live in Turkey, or have lived there before moving to other countries. Therefore, most of the diaspora Tatars speak Turkish. Many Turks and Europeans who know these Tatars assume that all Tatars can speak and understand Turkish.
      I'm one of these Mishar Tatars who grew up in Turkey before moving to the United States. Unfortunately my Tatar language ability comes from hearing my parents and their friends speak in Tatar, and not through schooling. Therefore, my Turkish language ability is better than my Tatar language skills.
      However, I see that all Turkic groups making an effort to understand each other better, perhaps we could do our part my posting some of our messages in both Tatar and Turkish, or one of these languages and in English.
      Sincerely,
      Kamil Yuneli

          Dear Kamil,
           
          With all due respect, you have misunderstood my query. I am very well aware not only of the linguistic links between various Turkic languages, but also of how those languages circulate in diaspora communities. Rather, I am inquiring about the near-imperialist presumption of Anatolian Turks who consider all other Turkic languages to be but dialects of their standard.
           
          I don't wish to inject a dose of marja kebek venom into the list. At the same time, it becomes tiresome to read post after post from Anatolians who write in Turkish presuming that Tatars are some kind of little brothers who have an obligation to know their language.

            Dear Helen,
            Almost all of the Turkish posts in our message board have been posted
            by Tatars not by Anatolian Turks. These posters are just using the
            language that they are most familiar with and also in the language
            that would be understood by a larger audience.

            I'm in favor of posting messages in Tatar by those who are
            proficient in that language, but any poster who is interested in
            being heard by a larger audience would be wise to post their message
            also in Turkish or/and English.

            Sincerely,

                Dear Helen,
                Almost all of the Turkish posts in our message board have been posted
                by Tatars not by Anatolian Turks.  These posters are just using the
                language that they are most familiar with and also in the language
                that would be understood by a larger audience.

                I'm in favor of posting messages in Tatar by those who  are
                proficient in that language, but any poster who is interested in
                being heard by a larger audience would be wise to post their message
                also in Turkish or/and English.

                Sincerely,
                Kamil Yuneli

                At the same time, it becomes tiresome to read post after post from
                Anatolians who write in Turkish presuming that Tatars are some kind
                of little brothers who have an obligation to know their language.

                    Dear Helen,
                    Almost all of the Turkish posts in our message board have been posted
                    by Tatars not by Anatolian Turks.  These posters are just using the
                    language that they are most familiar with and also in the language
                    that would be understood by a larger audience.

                    I'm in favor of posting messages in Tatar by those who  are
                    proficient in that language, but any poster who is interested in
                    being heard by a larger audience would be wise to post their message
                    also in Turkish or/and English.

                    Sincerely,
                    Kamil Yuneli

                    At the same time, it becomes tiresome to read post after post from
                    Anatolians who write in Turkish presuming that Tatars are some kind

Cho'nki Kazan Tatarlary To'rek telen belmila'r ha'm uryslardan kollar kebek kha'rvakyt u'rna'k alalar. Na'k Kazanda ha'r pochmaktan urys pop-yerlary gyna ishetela' a' To'rek va' Tatar yerlary ishetelmi? Cho'nki Kazan Tatarlary To'rek ma'da'niya'te turynda bernida' belmila'r, alarnyng u'z ma'da'niya'te tu'ba'n da'ra'zha'da'ge bula (shunyng o'chen bik zhitdi sa'ba'pla're bar, shunga ku'ra min Kazan Tatarlaryn monda ta'nkyit' itmim) ha'm uryslar kebek itenerga' toryshalar.  H.b., h.b. Andyi ma'sa'la'la'r bik ku'p.  A', mena', Tagyn ber misal - irta' bela'n TNV'ny bakkanda: alar shul Brazildagy sabyn-operada Tatar telenda'ge ta'rzhema'da' "ochkych" (To'rekcha' "uchak") urynyna "samolet" kullangannar. Na'k? Cho'nki gadi Kazanlylarga urys telenna'n su'zne alyrga zhingelra'k - To'rek ma'da'niya'ten Kazanga/Tatarstanga uryslar da yeba'rmi, Tatar ziyalylary da To'rkiya' ziyalylarynyng tarafynnan "yaryshyn" korpkyp toralar (ma'sa'la'n, Orhan Pamuk kebek yazuchylar Tatarstanda yok, CNN Turk kebek TV channely Tatarstanda yok ta yakyn kila'cha'kta' bulmas ta, h.b.), h.b., h.b.

                      Kyskacha, in short, in my humble opinion, there are only benefits from "merging" the Tatar and Turkish cultures, langages, life-styles, etc.  Turks are the most Westernized and sophisticated "Turks" (i.e. Tatars, Bashkorts, Uzbeks, etc.).  We simply must USE Turkey and the Turkish language as a conduit to the Western world, as an antidote to the extremely stupid and "sexually confused" Russian pop-culture (with male singers dressed as Ukrainian middle-aged women, male stand-up comedians dressed as old female "babuskas", etc., etc.), since the Turkish pop-culture seems to be more competitive and attractive, and as an example for further development of the Tatar nation.  There is also a benefit from seeng Tatar-related stuff from Turkish mass media on this forum - even if we don't understand 100%, we still get an idea of what it is about and also get a feel of how things are perceived from Turkey, excuse me for yet reiterating this, OUR most independent, developed, educated and wealthy country.   

                      Yaryi, buldy.  Inglizcha' da' Tatarcha da bersa'k yazyp kuidym.  Igtibarygyz o'chen bik zur ra'khma't, Helen tutash...  Ungyshlar ha'm ba'khet Sezga' tela'p kalam.

                      >   I'm one of these Mishar Tatars who grew up in Turkey before
                      moving to the United States. Unfortunately my Tatar language ability
                      comes from hearing my parents and their friends speak in Tatar, and
                      not through schooling. Therefore, my Turkish language ability is
                      better than my Tatar language skills.

                      >   However, I see that all Turkic groups making an effort to
                      understand each other better, perhaps we could do our part by posting
                      some of our messages in both Tatar and Turkish, or one of these
                      languages and in English.

                      that Tatars have to understand Turkish?
