Hi,

How do you say 'a.m.', please?

E.g. "The time was 5 a.m. (now often written '5am') and the sun had just risen."

Best,

Simon

    We usually say "sabah 5" till 10 a.m. and "öğleden önce" between 10 and 12 o'clock.

    Your sentence could be translated as:
    "Saat sabahın 5'iydi ve güneş daha yeni doğmuştu."
    or
    "Sabah 5'ti (kalktığımda=when I woke up) ve güneş..."

    Kolay gelsin :)

    There isn't such a rule (sabah till 10 then öğleden önce between 10 and 12) among people.
    It depends on you and the time that you're talking about.
    For example if it is 5 a.m you can say sabah 5.
    If it is 2 p.m you can say öğleden sonra 2 or gündüz 2.
    If 2 a.m you can say gece 2.
    So, for example some people may think 4 p.m is evening, some people may not.

    In the daily talk, it's generally used as "saat 2'de" for 2 p.m. You don't always need to say "öğleden sonra 2"

    I mean, when you talk to someone and say that "Saat 4'te buluşuruz." He/she will understand it as 4 pm. But you have to indicate if it's 4 a.m.:

    i.e. "Gece (or sabaha karşı) 4'te seni ararım."
