İñu. aapaga = Türk. atam (my father)

İñu. aapiyaba = Türk. agam - agabayim - agabeyim (my brother)

İñu. akkaga = Türk. amcam (old Türkish akam, aka; measn uncle old Türkish and Mongolian)


İñu. inikitchuq ; measn little house, ini:home, room, and Türkish in: meas little place, little cave. kitchuq = Türk. Küçük (kuchuk, kuechuek; little)


İñupiaq -ti and Türkish -ci, çi (chi), cı (cy), çı (chy) means in English -er (writer, reader vb...)


afuniaq ;hunt, hunting: afuniaqti : hunter, Türk. av=avcı (avcy, Türkish charecters maybe disappear ? for example Iı ? )

This is very interesting. Had never thought that Kalaallisut and Turkish could have similarities.
