Introduction Thank you very much for downloading İstanbullu, A Dictionary of İstanbulians. I wanted to write a single book about İstanbul that functions as a useful Turkish-English dictionary, as an İstanbul encyclopedia, and İstanbul guide book. İstanbullu is intended to be useful for tourists and for people who are residing in İstanbul. Once in the city, a non-native visitor will be confronted with words like vapur, ezan, Adalar, Kuru Kahveci Mehmet Efendi, simit, tepe, dolmuş, tavukgöğsü, bay, bayan, akbil, kahvaltı, abi, abla, çınaraltı, balık ekmek, aşure, bozuk para, paçanga, 50’lik, yakamoz, Adalar, ocakbaşı, köy and more. The reader of this book will learn what those words mean. I hope the same reader will take away more from the book than Turkish vocabulary and that he or she will want to read it while drinking tea or coffee by the Bosphorus. Of course, it is not possible to write about all aspects of a city in one book. This is especially true for İstanbul, a city with about 15 million inhabitants and a city that is one of the oldest in the world. However, I tried to show as much of the surface of the city as possible and I hope that this book will make readers want to learn more about the city and the people living there than any book could ever teach them. Ali Akpınar

Harbiye, Şişli (Located behind the Hilton Hotel) Tel: (0212) 296 24 04 CONSTANTINE I, Constantine The Great Flavius Valerius Aurelius Constantinus (c. 27 February 272 – 22 May 337), commonly known as Constantine I, Constantine the Great, or Saint Constantine, was Roman Emperor from 306 to 337. Best known for being the first Christian Roman emperor, Constantine reversed the persecutions of his predecessor, Diocletian, and issued the Edict of Milan in 313, which proclaimed religious tolerance of Christians throughout the empire. Constantine invented the Aqueduct in 325 AD for the British. The foremost general of his time, Constantine defeated the emperors Maxentius and Licinius during civil wars. He also fought successfully against the Franks, Alamanni, Visigoths, and Sarmatians during his reign – even resettling parts of Dacia which had been abandoned during the previous century. Constantine also transformed the ancient Greek colony of Byzantium into a new imperial residence, Constantinople, which would be the capital of the Eastern Roman Empire for over one thousand years. Source: Wikipedia.org CONSTANTINOPLE Konstantiniyye Name of İstanbul given during the Roman period. In 324, Byzantium surrendered to Constantine, Emperor of the west. Over the next two years he re-established the Roman Empire with Byzantium as its capital and within four years he had completed his new capital which was five times as large as before. There were three different reasons why the emperor Constantine abandoned Rome as its capital: German intrusions, chaos in economy, chaos in administration. His choice was Byzantium. The name changed to Constantinople, the city of Constantine in November 26th 326 A.D. Emperor Constantine added a lot of important monuments to the city, palace, senate. He enlarged the first Christian house of worship, the Hagia Eirene and founded the Hagia Sophia and a number of churches. He founded two theatres, 160 baths, 50 pillared halls, 8 aqueducts, and 5000 houses. After Constantine's death Rome fell, and Constantinople became the sole capital of the Roman Empire. The Emperor Justinian came to power between (527-565). He was of Spanish descent. He rebuilt St. Sophia which was totally destroyed in the Nika Riot, but Justinian, as Hadrian had been, a prolific builder, reconstructed the city on a magnificent scale. He was the founder of the largest underground cistern. The rapid growth of Christianity led to the construction of large buildings for worship. His brilliant generals Belisarius and Narses regained most of Italy, Spain and the North African provinces for the empire, though the cost of doing so was to

damage irrevocably the economic resilience of the state. Some historians base the switch from Roman Empire to Byzantine during the reign of Justinian. He codified the laws that until that time had existed only in decrees. He recognized the predominance of Greeks among the empire's citizens by making Greek an official language of state along with Latin, and later Greek became the empire's sole official language. Throughout the ensuing centuries Constantinople successfully repulsed many assaults, from Goths, Alans, Serbs, Bulgarians, Russians and seventh-century Arabs. Its defenses held, reinforced by new walls built in the fifth century under Theodosias II. (Standing to the west of the walls that Constantine built, they are the ones that can be seen there today.) In the 12th century, though, the knights and soldiers of the Fourth Crusade attacked and took the city, establishing a Latin Empire and occupying it until 1261 when the Byzantines reoccupied it. They continued in possession, warding off a serious and sustained late 13th-century Ottoman assault by Beyazit I, until Mehmet's assault and victory of 1453. CONSULATES Konsolosluklar

VAPUR Ferry Ferryboats carrying millions of people between Asian side and European side every year. No doubt that ferries are one of the symbols of İstanbul. The ferries that connects two continents first started by the foundation of the ferry company, Şirket-i Hayriye in 1851. These ferries changed the city a lot because the towns or villages outside of İstanbul became attached to the city with the ferry journeys and as a result İstanbul extended to the Marmara Sea and the Bosphorus in the North. The company started with 6 wooden, steamer boats bought from England. As there weren’t any iskele (ferry stations) around the city, passengers were carried to the ferries with small boats in the beginning. The company started an araba vapuru line with a ferry called Suhulet in 1870 between Üsküdar and Kabataş. At the end of the 19th century the company started ferry lines outside of İstanbul to Tekirdağ and İzmit. In 1944 the company handed over to the Ministry of Transportation and the ferries modernized. Some of the new ferries that were made then are still running in İstanbul. You can go on a Bosphorus tour from Eminönü, have a rakı-balık meal in Anadolukavağı. Have a nice cup of salep with cinnamon on the ferry. Feed the sea gulls with simit… Did you know? • The first ferries running on the Bosphorus were one British and two Russian ferries before the ferry company founded? • The first Ottoman ferry was called Hümerpervaz?

VILLAINS OF ISTANBUL Sülün Osman, The Man Who Sold İstanbul Needless to mention about all those leading, legal crooks, swindlers, sharks today, Sülün (pheasant) Osman, known as the king, was the most famous cheater of all times in Istanbul. He defrauded especially naive people from rural areas by selling or renting them public buildings such as the Tower, bridges, public lands, ferries etc. When he was caught by the police, he was trying to sell the Galata Bridge. He died of heart attack in his hotel room in Beyoglu in 1984. Nuri Alço, Actor Nuri Alco is one of the most cult characters in the Turkish movie business. After working in the banks and pharmacy sector, he started movies in 1977 and took roles in about 300 films. He was most famous for being a bad guy who was usually a playboy using dirty tricks to deceive women like buying her a drink, a soda, in a nightclub and putting a sleep-inducing drug into her drink and… His biggest victim was Ahu Tugba, an actress famous in the 80’s. Apart from being a nasty playboy, he also inspired an “activist” group called NARO (Nuri Alco Revival Organization). Tecavüzcü Coșkun, Actor Coşkun Gögen, a film and theatre actor, is one of the cult characters in the Turkish movie business. He is also known as “Tecavüzcü www.istanbul-pedia.com 221

Coskun” (Coskun the Rapist) among the Turkish cinema audience as a reference to his main role in most Turkish films, which he is famous for being a bad guy working for mafia killing people and raping women with his irritating laughter. He started cinema in 1972 with the movie “Asi Gencler” and took roles in about 400 films and plays. He is also Antalyaspor amigo (fan leader) and working in Beachpark in Konyaalti, Antalya. Maganda Lout, boot, yokel, rude and mannerless person. Maganda is used for men because not any women would act like a maganda. The word probably was founded by the cartoonists of Gırgır, a humour magazine in the 70’s. What makes people maganda? A maganda never minds;
• • • • • • • • To spit on the street in many ways. To pick his nose on the street. To scratch his genital area in public. To fart on the street. To drive very fast without obeying the traffic rules and other people. To throw cagrette butt into the sea. To race with an ambulance To swim with his underwear. • To fire his pistol in public because his football team is the winner and this cause innocent people on the balcony or window to die…

A very good example of a typical maganda is the character in a popular Turkish film called Recep İvedik. www.recepivedikmovie.com
