Proper accusative and dative for numbers "bir" through "on iki" for telling time

Hello,

After studying the time unit, I decided to make some cards to help myself practice. I wanted to write down several different times in English, and their Turkish translations. But I realised I'm not entirely sure about the proper accusative and dative forms of the hours.

Can you help me out by correcting the list below?

  • Accusative case suffix: -(y)I - (4-way vowel harmony)
  • Dative case suffix: -(y)A - (2-way vowel harmony)

  • nom. - acc. - dat.

  • Bir - Biri - Bire
  • Iki - Ikiyi - Ikiye
  • Üç - Üçü - Üçe
  • Dört - Dörtü - Dörte (do I need to apply consonant mutation?)
  • Beş - Beşi - Beşe
  • Altı - Altıyı - Altıya
  • Yedi - Yediyi - Yediye
  • Sekiz - Sekizi - Sekize
  • Dokuz - Dokuzu - Dokuza
  • On - Onu - Ona
  • On bir - On biri - On bire
  • On iki - On ikiyi - On ikiye

Teşekkürler!

BTW, yes you shouldn't apply consonant mutation for words with single syllable.
