ÝAGDAÝYŇYZ NIÇIK?
How are you?

Salam, my Turkmenists! In this lesson we will continue looking at Murat and Bahargül. This time, though, they will be asking each other Ýagdaýyňyz niçik?. Although this translates as "How are you?", it literally means "How is your situation/condition/etc.?" (ýagdaý = condition, state, circumstance, etc.).

Murat: Salam, Bahargül!
Bahargül: Salam!
Murat: Ýagdaýyňyz niçik?
Bahargül: Ýagşy. Siz?
Murat: Ajaýyp!
