Turkish Turkey

sağlık olsun

Standard Phrase USED Frequently BY Everyone

(Let there be health) • When the situation is messed up beyond all repair, one can use the phrase given and try to hide their feeling of extreme sadness and inferiority to the aspects that cannot be changed by the one himself. It is highly possible that a well educated contender at the turkish version of the tv show "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" will get eliminated at the second or third question and use this phrase to hide their stupidity in a polite manner. The importance of this phrase is that both sides of the conversation are completely aware that the user has nothing logical or acceptable to say- but "Sağlık olsun". Also, the reciever can use the phrase to emotionally support the other person.

"We have lost the elections." "(Sağlık olsun,) We'll get them next time."
