Any words of endearment are music to my ears... But especially "aşkım".

I am a very avid user of "cano," which is how many people in Eastern Anatolia pronounce "canım" :D

I think it is because of you always listen and say: "If I was a flying pigeon at the foothills of the Mount Ararart, Cano Cano" :D

Eşek. Term of endearment.

Hahah! That's awesome :D I am a native Turkish speaker and the most beautiful word in Turkish according to me is... ŞAPŞİK, also as a term of endearment. It's a lovely word :)

:) Seslisözlük does not explain this one. Do you mind?

"Şapşik" is used for şapşal's term of endearment. A very very very much cute word and informal.

şapsal =aptalca davranışlarda bulunan, alık

I really like "alacalı" which means "colorful" among other things :)
