Quoting Abla

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.

 

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?

I would like to add one;

 

It´s "Dünür"

 

Dünür = the father-in-law or mother-in-law of one´s child

But your father-in-law or mother-in-law is not your dünür. Your father or mother is the dünür of your father-in-law or mother-in-law.

Yes father-in-law or mother-in-law is not my dünür. But as I wrote, father-in-law or mother-in-law of one´s child is dünür. The key word here is "one´s".

Yes, I know I just explained more to prevent a misunderstanding

Yes these Turkish relative names are confusing enough. So further explanation is always good
