What’s the etymology for ‘baykus’?
bay meant rich and powerful in old turkish but i think there is no written evidence to prove this relation http://nisanyansozluk.com/?k=bayku%C5%9F=0=0
In Kazakh the word bay means rich
I have found the answer on a website that is Turkish,I will summarize:
It is an Arabic word,and it means ''big headed''.Bay is the root of büyük (big).
Hope this helps!Cheers!
I took Arabic in high school, it’s definitely not Arabic.
Well,I think we need a captain here for a detailed explanation.It would be also an old Turkish word.
Its arabic .. we have 2 kind arabic talk and arabic written .. Bay is a word egyption people used as a title or nikname for some people we can not found this word in arabic book ..
Wrong, Bay (Rich or grand) and kuş (bird) are both ancient Turkic words. Baykuş means the grand bird. You can always look up words on Wikitionary for exact etymologies: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/bayku%C5%9F
I'm an Arab, It's not arabic xD
Could this be "The big owls"?
it can be and this is already accepted
When do you use "is", like "The owls are big" between "Big owls"?
That would be: Baykuşlar büyük = (the) owls are big.
OK, thanks for that
Büyük over this tts sounds almost like big)) easy to remember
Büyük ve güzel baykuşlar. Duo gibi.
I can clearly hear her say büyüyük baykuşlar. Instead of büyük
