describes the differences and has examples.

Turtle WD refers to:


Proposals for resolution of Turtle/SPARQL compatibility:

# 2 Decimals
Already done.
SPARQL has changed.

# 3 bNode property lists as triple patterns
Proposal: Add to Turtle

# 4 RDF Collections as triple patterns
No action.
Not in Turtle, leave in SPARQL.

# 5 Trailing dots
Proposal: No changes for the moment.

Include in TriG

Maybe add to Turtle in a later draft; it will not invalidate a valid 
Turtle document.

# 6 Strings
Turtle WD has the changes to adopt SPARQL ' and '''-strings

# 7 Local part of prefix names can begin with a number
Turtle WD has the changes to include numbers at the start of the local part.

# 8 Escape Processing
Proposal: Adopt Turtle style / Change SPARQL.

\u escapes can only appear in strings and IRIs
\u do not appear in the grammar but are described separately as at present.

This is a change to SPARQL but in an area rarely seen.

The SPARQL Grammar (editors' working draft) currently has 3 items marked 
as a document note which will be in the LC candidate:
