Communicating at the Post Office

Here are some words that will come in handy at the post office (postane):

To send: gOndermek

To mail: postalamak

Envelope: zaft

Registered: taahhutlu (tah-hoot-loo)

Stamp: pul, posta pulu

Postcard: posta karti

Letter: mektup

Often, if you merely be polite and hand the person what you need mailed, they will take care of it for you and give you a total. Packages will be sent airmail as a default, and so unless you wish to have something registered with insurance, you can get through it with very little Turkish if you need to.
