Do you mean "dinlemek" and "sesleNmek" ?

Duymak = to hear

Dinlemek = to listen

Seslenmek = to call (like : "Hey buddy , come hereee !! I'm here !" * shakes his hand up*)

Aramak = to call (in telephone)

Aramak = to search

You are right. There is no difference between "dinlemek" and "seslemek". However, as you have seen, even the many native speakers did not hear about the verb "seslemek". It is a kind of word, which is in the dictionary but nobody uses it. If you want to say "listen" in Turkish, "dinlemek" is the way to go.

Seems you are right KenVors. I checked both Turk Dil Kürümü (http://www.tdk.gov.tr/) and Vikisözlük (https://tr.wiktionary.org) to satisfy my curiosity. Good advice as well. Dinliyoruz!

it is also listed as "hlk" in TDK dictionary, so obviously it is only used locally by some people in daily speech.

You are right. I have found an entry about the verb in Eksisözlük.
