As a native Albanian speaker, I'm really enjoying learning Turkish. I knew we shared many words, but I think that's especially true in this section about personal relationships.
For example, we also say "beqar" to mean single, "teze" or "hallë" for aunt and "dajë" for uncle (the j has a y sound). We even add "im" or "ime" at the end to signify "my."
Looking forward to the rest of this course and discovering many more common threads!
I think that " bekar " is a loaned Arabic word " بكر " which means single. Bekar = single, while bakir/bakire = virgin.
An Arabian here beker means women's genitalia in Arabic, I'm sorry though
Is this "single" as in "not married", like German "ledig" or as in "not in a relationship"?
