Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Mother

Answer: Anne

Baba means Father.
2. Aunt

Answer: Teyze

It is also used as an honorific to address strangers as well as elderly people (someone around 70-80 years old). Its counterpart is "amca/dayı".
3. Son

Answer: Oğlu

Many surnames in Turkish end with -oğlu indicating they're 'the son of' the name preceding it. Several other cultures have the same linguistic characteristic such as Swedish and Icelandic.
4. Sibling

Answer: Kardeş

This term is generic. If you want to say you have a "younger stepsister", you can say "küçük üvey kız kardeş". For specific genders, there are the terms "abi" and "abla" (brother and sister, respectively).
5. Grandfather

Answer: Dede

This is the formal term. Most Turkish people use 'babaanem' to refer to your 'paternal grandmother'.
6. Generation

Answer: Kuşak

It's a combination of the noun 'Kuş' which means 'wings/birds' and the suffix ~ak. I know it doesn't have a direct relation with the family members but families consist of different generations.
7. Older brother

Answer: Abi

It can be used also as honorific title to address strangers. Its feminine counterpart is Abla (for sister).
8. Cousin

Answer: Kuzen

As you will have noticed, they're very similar in sound.
9. Spouse


This is another generic term. Karı means wife while Kocası means husband.
10. Family

Answer: Aile

Family as in every member of it. You can see it more predominantly at cemeteries where more than a member of the family are interred within the same graveyard. It is engraved in a gravestone after the name of the family. I.e. Koca Aile (Family Koca).
