Takar VS. Giyer
When do we use 'takar' and when do we use 'giyer'? Both show up as an option for 'wear', but my answer almost always turns out to be wrong anyway.
So which one should be used and in what situations?
I congratulate our friend named Sergei49. These two verbs stem from the difference in use between garments and accessories.
If you are talking about a hat that you wear in cold (beanie etc.) you may say "giymek". But ,it wouldn't sound strange if you always use "takmak", on the other hand it really sounds wrong when you say "giymek" to certain types of hats. So stick with "takmak". "Eldivenler giyilir,şapkalar takılır." if you did understand that sentence , you are good to go.
Not always. I think it's not about what you wear but about how you wear. As a native it's instinctive for me but I find it difficult to explain. But If you can wear a hat with a single hand it's probably "takmak". If you wear the hat with two hands also give some effort to it , just like a shirt , you may use "giymek".
But as I said , it is not always like that. You can use "takmak" with all hats , however "giymek" goes for only small % of hats. Also you use "sarmak" for turbans (imam's hat) or use "bağlamak" for headscarf. In short; "takmak" is always true unless you are wrapping something.
You can use both. I have just pronounced it to myself and both makes equal sense.
If it covers your body we use "giymek" but if it is not we use "takmak". The verb "takmak" is also used like equipping something(like accessories and weapons).
Pantolonunu giy. = Wear your pants.
Kemerini tak. = Wear your belt.
