Why Do Turkish People "Open" The Lights?

If you ever had the chance to talk to a Turkish person, you will realize that at some point, when they are talking fast they will say that they “open” an electrical device. Such as;

I opened my computer last night… I mean I turned it on

This happens just only because of the native language. The Turkish word for “to open” is “açmak” and it also means “to turn on”

If you go further you will also see that they will use the word “açık” (adj, open) for colors that are “light”

If after a cloudy morning, it becomes sunny, Turkish people will say “The sun opened” (Güneş açtı) to indicate that it became sunny.

It is just incredible that one word can mean all of that…

It’s here. It’s finally here in the U.S. The movie that beat out Spirited Away at the box office even before North American release. The masterpiece of an Alternative Rock soundtrack and unfathomable mixes of emotions the movie conveys in vibrant colors. Your Name is finally in theaters across the U.S. and Canada.
