    Greetings,

    Please, what various ways do you have of saying, “to turn people against someone”?

    This means that somebody goes around saying nasty things about somebody else and, as a result of this, some people begin to dislike and mistrust him.

    Best wishes, and many thanks,

    Simon

    Hello seitt,

    "Dolduruşa getirmek, doldurmak, kulis yapmak, kuyusunu kazmak" can be used in that sense.

    Cheers.

    Additionally, "dedikodu yapmak" is very common in this context. It's meaning is slightly different tho, it is: "spreading rumours".

    To my knowledge; no one of these is fully even some of them partially; compliant with the idea given.

    Ahmet'i Mehmet'in ALEYHİNE DÖNDÜRMEK: To turn Ahmet against Mehmet.

    Ahmet'i Mehmet'e DÜŞMAN ETMEK. To set Ahmet as an enemy of Mehmet.

    Ahmet'le Mehmet'i BİRBİRİNE DÜŞÜRMEK. To set Ahmet and Mehmet as enemy/against of EACH OTHER.

    Last one is broader than others due to its bilateral manner.
