I know this wasn't part of the sentence but I've been wondering; what is the difference between birlikte and beraber? The both mean together, right?
As far as I know they both mean the same thing and they're interchangeable.
I have done a little more research and broke up birlikte. Could someone tell me if this is correct: bir means one lik means 'ness te means in. So birlikte means in oneness, or unity, right? So is beraber more for a group that is together?
Yes its etymology is that but final meaning is being a group with unity so beraber and birlikte are synonyms. (The difference is beraber is persian origin)
