can someone rank these words? as in which one is ´´stronger´´? I understand what they mean but I´d like to know if one means more than another or it´s just a matter or preference (mood perhaps?) tesekkurler

 

ak覺m

bebeim

bitanem

can覺m

hayat覺m

Good question. I don´t know the answer but here´s my 2 cents.

can覺m is the weakest of the 5 since it´s widely used, i.e. frienship and family even in the office setting. I think hayat覺m is stronger

perhaps bebeim is the strongest because unless you are talking to a baby, the meaning is obvious

It´s most of the dependant on the person using it but usually "can覺m" is the softest, followed by "bi tanem" and then "hayat覺m". Usually "ak覺m" is the most affectionate one and indicates deep love. When it comes to "bebeim", this one is generally less associated with love and more with lust or desire.


Then again, these are my personal opinions and like I said, it really depends from person to person.
