Yes, Ambia.

But what you wrote is only slightly wrong :)

It should be "bakmak" instead of "bakmek".


all infinitives end with "-mek" or "-mak" according to vowel harmony.

If the last syllable of the verb root has a,ı,o,u; then the infinitive of the verb gets "-mak" suffix.
If the last syllable of the verb root has e,i,ö,ü; then the infinitive of the verb gets "-mek" suffix.

Bak is the root of the verb.
so the infinitive of the verb "bak" is "bakmak".
