Hi all

 

Recently, I came across word "oynamaca", in context of playing with children. I suppose that as "bulmaca" means "crossword puzzle" and "bilmece" means "word puzzle" then perhaps "oynamaca" simply means playing with someone or in some game? Is this correct?

Also, when looking for translation of this word, I found explanation that "-ca, -ce" suffix appended to verbal nouns (bulma, gelme like in bulması, gelmem) is used to create kind of diminutive form of noun which can be used to speak to children. Is this true as well?

Oynamaca sounds like a made up word.  But  this -ce,-ca suffix has the function you mentioned above. For example you can hear a teacher saying the children who are playing in the garden: "Koşmaca yok".

I have never heard  that word [oynamaca] used as a noun, however you may hear it used as verbal noun [with -ca/ce suffix added onto it]. That may sound as childish sounding way of naming the games such as :

 

´´Körebe oynamaca ´´   ---> Playing Körebe game.

´´Spiderman oynamaca´´  ---> Playing the Spiderman game.
