    Turkey and Turkmenistan are completely different countries with completely different cultures and traditions, even if their names sound similar.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TurkeY

    Turkmenistan, however, is located in Central Asia. Therefore its geographically and culturally closer to other Central Asian countries like Uzbekistan, Tajikistan. There is a Turkmen region in Iran.

    The Turkish and Turkmen languages are similar as both of the belong to Turkic group.

    Turkish language and Turkmen language are different ... languages are a little bit smilar but not all .. becasue turmen speaks pure turkish since central assia they have a Turkmen alphabet .. this is different..there do not have some of the letters in Turkish.. ..but Turks speaks different turkish .. becasue we have a different alphabet..

    In fact Turkish and Turkmen language are a bit similar; especially the one is spoken in Kerkük-Northern of Iraq, so u can understand each other despite ur different languages.Turkish is more latin-rooted but Turkmen is more arabic/asian-rooted on my say so.
