  5. "Gönderdiğin takım elbiseyi g…

"Gönderdiğin takım elbiseyi giyerim."

Translation:I will wear the suit that you sent.

October 3, 2015



Why is the translation in the future tense but written in the present tense in Turkish? Could it not be i wear the suit that you sent


In the earlier parts of the tree, we didn't give the full story about the aorist tense. You can find out more about it here. It is pretty complex actually for native English speakers because we have nothing similar to this in our language :)


Thank you! That was very helpful. Twenty lingots to you! Hopefully additonal useful information like this is incorporated into the Tips sections in the next course update.


Both are OK in this context. The present tense sometimes can be used instead of the future tense. It is similar to what we say in English; "I am going tomorrow." (Yarın gidiyorum.). You can use "I will go tomorrow." (Yarın gideceğim.) instead here and both has the same meaning. So, "Yarın giderim/gidiyorum/gideceğim." are all fine. But when present or present continous tense is used in the future meaning, there is generally a time indicator word like "yarın, bu akşam, seneye".


But there is no indicator in this sentence so shouldn't it just be İ wear the suit that you sent


Anyway how would we translate: "I wear the suit that you sent" is it the same? EDIT: I found out in this attempt that this sentence can also be translated as "I wear the suit that you sent"


This sentence is wrong. I am a Türk. Correct sentence : Gönderdiğin takım elbiseyi giyeceğim.


"I wear the suit that you sent me" should be accepted as correct also.


Please tell me whether my explanation is correct: This can only mean "you sent" and not "he sent"? The ambiguity between the two only appears with the definite accusative ending (-InI), because the "n" for the second person and the "n" that is inserted for separation of the two i are not distinguishable? "He sent" would in this sentence be "Gönderdiği"? Here, the participe is an adjective and thus takes no case ending?


Çok teşekkürler. Oldukça zordu :-)


May be that it is a stupid question. I can't remember that there was any lesson about "ince". If there had been, please let me know, then I quickly will have to repeat it. If not, from where everybody is knowing about that form?


If you are talking about the suffix, it is the skill "when" towards the bottom of the tree. If you are talking about the word for "slim," we do not teach it :)


"Gönderdiğin takım elbiseyi giyerim." Translation: I will wear the suit that you sent.


I will wear the suit you sent.

If giyerim is I will wear, how do we say, I wear?


Her gün pantolon giyerim - I wear pants every day. Its the same. Just in your example it indicates a future tense, because Aorist has many functions in Turkish.
