"Öğretmen bir açıklama veriyor" not acceptable?

Nope, it doesn't make sense in Turkish really. You can only "do/make" explanations. :)

understood. Açıklama yaptığın için teşekkür ederim :)

I wonder if açıklama is related to explanation.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AlexinNotTurkey

It is the word for "explanation" :)

I am talking about the etymology of the word!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AlexinNotTurkey

I don't think so. It is derived from the word "açık" in Turkish, which is "open"

What about bir (an). Why is missing?
