Thank you my collegue! Although your extensive knowledge has always proved to be amazing, I did not guess you were teaching, too.
Anyway, as you may appreciate, there's no 'perfect' course book on History of Civilization or Humanities. Therefore, I think, you will feel compelled to publish your own, which, will still be needing upgraded ever other year or so

Professionally, I'm a biologist, not an historian. But my first love was history.

We share more than warlike internet names. :-)

Yes, you're quite right! In fact Bahadır is my real name.Meanwhile, to my surprise, you seem to know its meaning, too:O

That was a guess. I supposed that the name is a variant of Baghatur.

You're almost infallible Barbarian
In fact Baghadur, which is known to be an ancient Turkish term meaning 'warrior' and a name as well, should be a variant of Bahadır since in Turkish, which is a 100% phonetic language, two consonants or two vowels do not come together. What is more, straight vowels 'a,e,ı,i' could only be followed by straight vowels whereas round vowels 'o,ö,u,ü' could be followed by either straight vowels of(a,e) or round vowels of( u,ü).
Enough of grammer :blah: I salute you as a warrior for peace!
