Can i say: senin elmaların?


Yep! :) The difference could be either from formality (sen=informal; siz=formal) or in number (sen=1 person; siz=2+ people)


What is the different word "Sizin" with "senin" ?


"Sizin" means "yours" but addressed to a group of people mixed or not! Exp: In the classroom, the teacher order his pupils to open their books, so he will say: (Open "yours books") So, yours boos her will be "sizin kitapların". While the other possessive pronoun "senin", means "yours" either, but this time the teacher will order one pupil to open his/her book: (senin kitabın ...) ! Nice day!


"Senin" means you're using singular, informal "you." "Sizin" means you're using plural or formal "you."


Still don't know when to use the " ı ". Drives me crazy


Read this post about 4-way vowel harmony. It explains it using the accusative case, but it stands true for all suffixes that use this pattern: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/9041808


"senin elmaları" must be accepted , right ? it was wrong, why?


The possessive ending that is paired with the genitive "senin" is "-(i)n" -- you left off a letter.


Danika_dakika, so "senin elmaların" . Will you precise to me which is the mean to reach level 25? Thanks.

Why is it elmaların not elmalarını


I'm guessing that 'elmalarını' is accusative? If so, out of context, it could be correct too.


Hello AJ72T! There is no verb in that sentence, "elmalarin" is not a direct definite object so "elmalarini"= yours apples" can't be in this context.


There is no "accusative out of context" -- if it is not a specific direct object, it never is applied. We don't have that context, so we won't see it in this sentence.


Breaking this down for better understanding: elma/apple; lar/ indicates plural; in/ indicates possession; iz/ second person plural. Is this correct?


in/ indicates possession; iz/ second person plural.

More precisely "iniz/ indicates possession, second person plural."


what is difference between elmalar and elmalariniz


Minditon, "elmamar"= "elma"+"lar" plural suffix= the apples. "elmalariniz" = "elma" + "lar" +"iniz", possession or ownership suffix 2nd person plural = "your apples". "Benim elmalar-im"="my apples", "senin elmalar-in" = "your apples", 2nd person singular, "onun elmalari (i pointless)" = "her/his/its apples, "bizim elmalarimiz (pointless i)" = "our apples", "sizin elmalariniz"= "your apples" and "onlari (pointless i) elmalari (pointless i). Have a look at this video, very clear: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bH2iRwfBFPs, or there: duolingo turkish grammar portal, both usefull. There are a lot of sites about this topic.


What is the deglfference between i & ı


They are two different letters.


If it is sizin elmalarınız then how would we say My apples Bizim elamalarınız It's making me confuse how sizin elmalariğniz becomes (your apples) but in previous i have seen the iz at the end which used for pointing out ours (we) We eat a apple = biz bir elma yeriz So (iz) is pointing ours (we) Then how it becomes yours here??? Can u sort out my confusion plz


misstaj, when you are confused you begin to read again the TIPS or go on Duolingo Turkish Grammar Portal. Here is a website about this topic, a video in English very clear: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bH2iRwfBFPs. They are so many others!


how would we say My apples Bizim elamalarınız

Benim elmalarım

i have seen the iz at the end which used for pointing out ours (we)

Yes, but this is -ınız -- which is a different possessive ending.
