Especially for non-Turks, but not exclusive of our Turkish friends: what is your favorite Turkish word? Mine: misafirperverlik - partly because it just rolls off the tongue, partly because that's what I felt so strongly during the two years that I lived in Turkey.

It has to be "bebeğim". We call each other "baby" so that explains it (they told me that was the translation of "my baby" in Turkish)... wink* wink*

In my experience, the most practically useful single Turkish word is 'TAMAM'. Depending on the context it is used in, the intonation and the body language employed by the speaker, 'TAMAM' may mean,

OK
Got you !
Thank you
Enough
Complete
Finished
Cut it out!
ready

The magic is that the same word can also be used as a question, at least in most cases. Example: While 'TAMAM' is an expression of approval (like in OK), 'TAMAM?' would be a query seeking approval.

Yes, indeed, TAMAM is one of my favorite Turkish words
Thanks for explanation, AlphaF
Others are HOŞÃƒâ€¡AKAL and BOŞVER.
I have no special reason, just like how they sound.
