Miss said "no" without an explanation. The word "ekmek" has trans- mutated to "ekmeği. " Ekmek -nominative case. ekmeği - accusative case. k-ğ. Please can a contributor check my answer. To all fluent English language users: Please can you simplify in friendly English these two words. Nominative & Accusative. At the moment I hate these words & ambiguous definitions in Dictionary .com Thank you

What's happening here? Why all the words that had K at the end shifted to ğ ? Ekmek went to ekmeği Yemek shifted to Yemeği ?

"I eat the bread." Translation: Ben ekmeği yerim.

Hello Quolh

You did not have a subject & your answer should still be correct?

"Ekmeği yerim." - I eat the bread. Your answer is correct both grammatically & in word order.

Ekmeği yerim. Yerim - "I eat"

(Noun) - ekmeği - (accusative)

(Accusative) - singular of ekmek. Third-person singular possessive of ekmek.

"I eat the bread." Translation: Ben ekmeği yerim.

Other example:

"They eat the bread" - Onlar ekmeği yer. (Yerler) No -ler suffix required.

In this example the plural pronoun acts as third person verb conjugation. "Yer" - eats. Not - yerim - "I eat."

Your answer as previously stated is correct.
