“Hello, I’m Johnny Cash.” Sure, it is Emre Yağlı. Alongside with my Turkish blog – eyagli.com, I have started to write here – eyagli.com/en – in English. To get in contact with me, you can use yagli.emre [at] gmail.com

I am a research assistant in the Department of English Linguistics in Hacettepe University, Ankara. In 2012, I submitted my MA dissertation – “An Optimality Theoretic Analysis of Focus in Turkish” Now, I am a PhD student in the same department.

Here, I write on various topics such as Internet, linguistics, music, movies, photography and TV (sure there will be some stuffs which are totally uncategorized). Thus, I am the only one who take the responsibility of what are written here.

To symbolize the situation, I can say that “I have a dream.” A personal status update given in every morning, dreaming of a nice space travel with SOYUZ TMA-16 or TMA-17 depending on when the dream will come closer to reality. Indeed, there are also white men, who are supposed to come from the north, are patiently being waited here.
