What kapa means?
Shouldnt be Kapat?
Kapamak and kapatmak are used interchangeably-- which i didn't also know until now !!!!
But i feel kapatmak is more used for something physicly like closing a window --- on the other hand kapamak more for abstract things like closing a loan or debit
Hope ,it helped You
"Kapa-" is the correct verb, actually. "Kapat-", however, has proved sinister enough to take over and become common over the years, turning "kapa-" into a relic which is seldomly used nowadays.
Hi, Could also be that 'kapat ceneni' is hard to say. The 't' may have become elided (is that the word?).
Technically, "kapa-" would be to close while "kapat-", to make it close.
Separate names with a comma.
