"Are you older than me?" would be better.
This would be:
'Benden (daha) büyük müsünüz.'
Vowel harmony!!! All vowels ü!!! Great example!!!
Are you my elder? Is it even english...
(Native English speaker) Though a bit old-fashioned, it is correct; think of it as an answer to the phrase "Don't talk back to your elders"....:)
Why is benim buyuk musun incorrect?
you must use the possessive endings. in informal language you may omit them only if you literally own the object. e.g. benim araba, benim çocuk
"you may omit them only if you literally own the object. e.g. benim araba, benim çocuk" (orde90)
Never heard about this rule, thank you very much for this useful information! :)
I cannot find evidence of büyük being a noun. What is the evidence?
Adjectives can be used as nouns in Turkish.
Why not 'Benim ihtiyarım mısın'?
Why are we using the plural "müsünüz" here? The question is "are you my elder" not "elders"
The "siz" form also shows respect and you would normally use it to people who are older that you do not know very well.
What is the meaning of "ihtiyar" that appears in the tip?
I didnt understand why müsün is not correct?
