Episode 25 – Greeting the Ships

The journalists try to understand the term "getürkt" and visit an unusual port where every ship is greeted in a particular way.

Ships in a port

Radio D Teil 01 Folge 25 Begrüßung der Schiffe

At Port Willkomm-Höft, each ship is greeted with the national anthem of the country whose flag it's flying under. In their radio play, Paula and Philipp examine the origins of this tradition -- which may be associated with the meaning of the word "getürkt." Meanwhile, Ayhan kills time at the office by reading a book about owls.

Since Eulalia can't read, Ayhan reads to her. This episode focuses on verb prefixes and the ways a verb's meaning can change when its prefix is altered.
