Example sentences using "Starter"

Q: for starters ile örnek cümleler göster.
A: Example:
Frank, who is a 6 year old boy, has two older sisters but wants a younger brother.
Frank declares: “I’m just going to do it myself, I will birth a baby boy tomorrow!”
Sisters: “That’s not possible.”
Frank: “Tell me one reason why not!”
Sisters: “Well, for starters, pregnancies last 9 months!”

In this example, there are many good and and obvious reasons that Frank would not be able to birth a baby boy tomorrow. And the sisters mentioned one of the simple and more obvious ones. It’s a way to emphasize the impossibility of Frank’s declaration, and not a way of actually starting to list all the reasons.

A more comedic response would have been:
Sisters: “Well, for starters, how are you going to pay for all the diapers!”
Choosing to say that reason over more obvious ones like: Frank can’t get pregnant. He is only 6. Pregnancies are longer than 1 day. Overall serves the same purpose as the previous response, but in a more humorous way.

You use for starters anytime there is a long list of reasons for something, including one major/obvious one.

I should also say you can also use for starters in straightforward ways.

Kevin: “Dad, how do I make pancakes?”
Dad: “Well, for starters, you’ll needs eggs, milk and flour”
The dad uses “for starters” in a simple literal way to start the list of steps of making pancakes.
