    Greetings

    I don't think there is an English word for this: I mean the the long coat (usually black) worn by conservative women in Turkey.

    It's different from the çarşaf in that it doesn't have a hood part for the head, but is instead usually accompanied by a separate headscarf.

    Best wishes, and many thanks,

    Simon

    PS Since I've written this, I've just seen another example: the woman in question had a rather large headscarf on her head, and the coat in this case was grey and almost down to her ankles.

    I think this is a special name for this cloth and it doesn't have a translation inside any other language. I guess everyone uses this Arabic word...
