Silly question but, what does the word "falan" mean? I hear people using it all the time...and my friend told me "it doesnt really mean anything"...so then I´m like "why do you guys use it?"

 

anyway, I´m wondering how and when do you guys use that word.

 

also if someone has more time on their hands, can someone explain to me how and when

to use the word "her halde" does that word give the same meaning as "olabilir" ?

 

- silly questions, but thanks anyway.

falan = and the like, things like those, something like that, etc.

 

her halde = literally in every case, close translation would be in any case, also sometimes maybe, I guess so, etc. So (olabilir=it may be) is also a translation for it.
