  5. "Barış has a white coat."

"Barış has a white coat."

Translation:Barış'ın beyaz bir ceketi var.

December 23, 2015



İn barış'ın , what is 'ın? 'In is for ownership??

    Gazafek: It makes sense in Turkish because that is the grammar.

    How does it make sense in English to put a preposition BEFORE a noun? For me. Why not "me for"? That's just how it works in English.

    Beyaz bir ceket = A white jacket

    Bir beyaz ceket = One white jacket


    Ben beyaz bir ceket demektense beyaz ceket de denebileceğini düşünüyorum. Artikelli bir dilden çeviriyor olmamız Türkçe'de zorunlu olarak 'bir' kullanılması gerektiği anlamına gelmiyor. Ki kullanılmıyor da.


    It asks us to translate "Barış has a white coat" into Turkish but then says ceketi is the word for coat and won't accept mantosu.


    is it compulsory to add the 'in' ?

      Or else, you could say "Barış beyaz bir cekete sahip.". But if I were you, I would prefer "Barış'ın beyaz bir ceketi var.".


      What about "ak bir ceketi"?


      Yes, you already know "ak" is a synonym of "beyaz". But it's not something you can hear anymore. "Ak" is usually used in idioms or literacy. Thus, according to me, you should avoid using "ak".


      Can we say "Barış'da beyaz bir ceket var"?


      maybe but "baris in beyaz bir ceketi var" better


      Isn't it necessary to have the possesive suffix even on the possessed object? In this case Baris'in ceketin.


      Please explain why Baris beyaz bir ceketi var is incorrect..thanks


      Is there any defference between ak and beyaz? And what about between siyah, kara and meşki?


      A native speaker can correct me if I'm wrong, but I was taught the following. Ak and kara are much older words and are now used more to mean pure/clean and dark, as opposed to just trying to say something is white (beyaz) or black (siyah). I have never heard of meşki.
