Where did the word νταλίκας come from?

Truck = φορτηγό (το), νταλίκα (η).

Νταλίκα is basically the typical scania truck. I don't think anything smaller qualifies.

What's the origin of the word νταλίκα, though? The ντ at the beginning makes it look un-Greek.

Is it from Turkish? Italian? Venetian? Albanian?

Hey this is my field. "Τράκτορ με επικαθήμενο" ή "Φορτηγό με νταλίκα" θα πεις για το "Scania". Do not underestimate my love for Scania. 🤣

She took the best years of my life.

Το τιμόνι του φορτηγού should be accepted.

It's already one of the accepted translations. We need a screenshot in case that was your answer.
