It took me about two minutes to read this word but I pretty quickly picked up on what it meant. The question I have is: isn´t -la and -t覺r kind of double? Don´t they both mean ´to make~´ something?

You are right! It´s kind of double but it is the preferred way when you derive new verbs.

usually -la-mak should mean to make something but

-la--mak = to become something

-la--t覺r-mak to make something become (something like that)

Maybe this is a good example

 

Onu uzaklat覺rd覺m - I made him move away

 

uzaklat覺m - I moved away

Certainly, it is..

There is one more thing that could be added to this..

-la..(mak) doesn´t always mean "to become"

- also indicates that the action is done by more than one person and often directed to each other.

Here is an example:

kucak -- (noun) bosom

noun + la => verb

kucakla

arkada覺n覺 kucakla - hug your friend

verb + => verb (cooperative-reciprocal voice)

kucakla

kucaklat覺lar - they hugged eachother

verb + d/t覺r => verb (causative)

kucaklat覺r

onlar覺 kucaklat覺rd覺m - I made them hug eachother
