çıtkırıldım


Definition from TDK Güncel Türkçe Sözlük:
"İstanbul'un çıtkırıldım hanımlarıyla benim gibi bir kaba asker geçinemez." - Halide Edip Adıvar

Example sentence(s):
  • "O kadar çıtkırıldım olmuş ki, tabirini, kelimesini bile beğenmiyor!" Necip Fazıl Kısakürek - Google Books  

Explanation:
Kelimesi kelimesine çevirisi "kar tanesi" olan "snowflake" sözcüğünün "kırılganlığını ve hassasiyetini" tam olarak yansıtan ve bizim dilimizde ve kültürümüzde kendine yer etmiş bir birleşik sözcük olan "çıtkırıldım" bence en uygun karşılık.
