Merhaba, 

benim soru: gelinin kardeşleri damada ne der? 

Ne demek? gelinin - a bride, kardeş - a brother, damat - son in law. 

And the answer is one of: enişte, amca, dayı veya ağbey.

Yardım istiyorum, lütfen.

Bride´s brothers call son in law as ´´Enişte´´

Amca is your father´s brother (male)

Dayı is your mother´s brother (male)

Ağabey is your brother (male) that is older than you.

 

I hope it will help you

Vocabulary structure tells a lot about the culture where the language is spoken. Eskimos have so many names for ´snow´ just like Arabic is rich with ´camel´ names. It seems that kinship terms are the horn of plenty for Turkish. Personally I feel confused looking at these lists: they are difficult to memorize because they have no meaning to me. I hardly know who my yenge or elti is and even if I did I would just call them by their names.

You can generally call any relative younger than you are by her/his name. That however does not nullify her/his kinship title.

Life gets easier, as you get older !  {#emotions_dlg.alcoholics}

It´s also hard to know some of them when you´re a child

 

- We are going to my elti´s

- You´re going where?

 

- Hey Bacanak, how are you?

- Mom, what does bacanak mean?
