. "Adam" however is Turkish for "man":-)
Actually it means 'human being' or 'person' in modern Turkish. A male adult is erkek in modern Turkish (kadin, without the dot, is woman).
Years ago I knew Turkish woman who was disgusted at an English translation of a Turkish text that kept translating 'adam' as 'man'. She said it made the text much more male than the original which was about people in general.
