I guess I have an idea of what a Lokum is...
it's a soft typical Turkish sweet, right?
Someone during my last trip to Turkey told me "Lokum" means "Cozy, Comfortable". is that true? :)sho_sayer

Thursday 31st of January 2008 05:48:48 PMorigin of Turkish word I am not sure about:
Could anyone help me with the word "alabak"? It means
1. stupid, imbecile;
2. saddle cloth; old clothes,rags
My problem is the etymology and the origin of the word. I managed to find some old words ("halb" or "halab" and "akk") that could be the initial compound word, but I can't be sure.
Of course, ?t could be "halabak" or any other form. Anyhow, I coudn't find it as such.
