Why was auntie not accepted? Its the same as aunt isnt it?


Because that is a non-standard word, we do not accept it. I could maybe see a situation where we could accept it for "Teyze" (used when referring to any older women), but in general, we stick to Standard American English while accepting British English alternatives :)


Really? I didnt realise Auntie wasn't a standard word. We do use it in British English, perhaps as an informal word for aunt. Is that what you mean when you say its not standard?


Why does kadın have to ve sufixed with dir for this answer to be correct?
