What's the root of the verb here? Kurtmak?
Kurtulmak. It is a verb that is a little irregular.
What do you mean by ''irregular''?
The active voice of "to save" is "kurtarmak." The passive is formed from a root that no longer exists, "kurtmak" (that is not a word in modern Turkish to my knowledge)
Can Korumak mean "to save" or is it just "to protect"?
It is "to protect"
