mustafa Kemal atatürk[edit]

not Cemal, djemal,


Semi-protected edit request on 26 June 2014[edit]

[musˈtäfä ceˈmäl ätäˈtyɾc] ---> [musˈtafa keˈmal ataˈtyɾc]

Nevermind past request, i get it, K is written as C, but it might as well be written as K

ɑ is the right letter for a in Mustafa Kemal, there is no ä in turkish ipa,_Azerbaijani_and_Turkmen and K is better than C, turkish learners may be confused, because C is pronounced DJ

Atatürk elected as first President of Turkey[edit]

This article never explicitly states that Atatürk was elected as the first President of the Republic of Turkey. I would recommend that, under the section "Establishment of the Republic of Turkey," the text in quotes below be added to the first sentence in the last paragraph:

On 29 October 1923, the Republic of Turkey was proclaimed" by the Grand National Assembly, and Mustafa Kemal was elected President of the Republic".[1]

edit request[edit]

"On 10 November 1924 it was renamed Cumhuriyet Halk Fırkası or Republican People's Party (In 1935 the word fırka was replaced by the word party.)" In this sentence, I'd suggest that the word "party" is changed to "parti" as that is the actual Turkish word that replaced "fırka." Xoox (talk) 21:43, 1 November 2015 (UTC)

Wrong number of adopted children[edit]

Both Mustafa_Kemal_Atatürk's_personal_life#Children and Sabiha Gökçen states that Atatürk adopted eight children; seven girls and one boy. Therefore, the last paragraph of Mustafa_Kemal_Atatürk#Personal_life should be edited so that the sentence "During his lifetime, Atatürk adopted thirteen children: a boy and twelve girls." is corrected.
