why not "bir yüz"?
That is just not correct in Turkish :) There is no real need for the "bir" if you think about it.
Yüz also means face, doesn't it?
yes, yüz means face and 100. just like yaz means write and summer
Also swim=yüz :)(:
Yüz also means swim
Isn't seksen German for 16?
Nope, that would be sechzehn. It has a close pronunciation, but I don't think the two are able to be mixed up.
Yüz also means "swim"
Yüzmek (The appendix -mek, -mak etc gives the exact meaning of "to" before verbs in English) So yes, we can say that.
Also, yüzmek means "to skin" in Turkish :) There are a lot of words like this that have same sounding but different meaning.
Why does it say one hundred not hundred then!
