Default To rigoletto: metafrasis

In contrast to Korkut and you I have neither the ambition nor the patience to discover the meaning of writings in languages I donít understand. So please translate your Karman-blah-blah to me.

Default Re: To rigoletto: metafrasis

it is a saying in turkish which can be idiotly translated as:

"sneaky plans of the karaman sheep will be revealed later on"

the sheep of karaman in turkey are famous with their nice, thick fur. karamanlis means "coming from karaman" doesn't it?

Karamanlis is a Turkish name and as far as I know it means exactly this.
