Pater Noster

The picture you see above is the "Pater Noster" written in Ottoman Turkish Language. Ottoman Turkish was actually Turkish, both in grammar and structure, but a more elegant language with the blend of Persian, Arabic and Greek loan words. The alphabet used was the Arabic Alphabet.

The first two sentences in this Pater Noster go like this: "Bizim atamız ki göklerdesin. Seniñ adıñ mukaddes olsun."

More will follow about Ottoman Turkish in the future.
