well iyi davranmak

bad kötü davranmak


right doğru davranmak

like dirt: bir hiç (means like a zero) gibi muhamale göstermek – check this one again, maybe someone can find a better translation


justice: adaletli davranmak

equally:  eşit (eşit ölçüde) davranmak


ex: Osman´a iyi davran! Treat Osman well!

davranmak seems to have a wider meaning than the English behave.


I often see it used with karşı also. Could it be approximately


                   birine karşı kaba davranmak ´behave rude towards someone´

                   birine kaba davranmak ´treat someone in a rude way´     ?


I wonder if Turks even see a difference here.


Anyway, thanks huko.

you´re right and there is no difference in this case between birine and birine karşı


another example:


birine karşı mahçup olmak (to be ashamed)
