The letter /r/ in Turkish is a pretty mysterious sound. When between vowels, it is like the Spanish /r/. When before a consonant or at the beginning of a word, it sounds like an English /r/. When at the end of a word, it becomes devoiced and sounds like an "sh" to an English speaker, but I promise you, it is not. (Although most speakers I know from Sinop do like to pronounce like an "sh")
Not really...the letter "h" would sound like that already (it is pronounced when at the ends of words). It is really just a devoiced /r/ sound which is pretty uncommon in other languages (although apparently according to wikipedia, it is the way that European Portuguese speakers pronounce the -r in "assar...I don't know if this is true or not though).
At this point, I had never been introduced to the words "O" or "yer". I hovered over "O" and it showed a list of translations, the first of which was "it". So I translated this as "eat it", which was apparently wrong. Would it be acceptable to translate this as "it eats" or "she eats" as well?
Here is a list of all genderless languages
The tricky bit is that the Turkish aorist (geniş zaman, e.g. o yer) doesn't map exactly to any English tense.
At the beginning of this course, it is translated with the present simple while the Turkish şimdiki zaman (e.g. o yiyor) is translated as present continuous once it is introduced.
So for this course, o yer = "he eats" (in general) and o yiyor = "he is eating" (as you say).
That o yer can also be translated into English differently, e.g. "he will eat", depending on the situation, is "secret knowledge for advanced students" (or native speakers!), perhaps :)
To avoid confusing new learners with the full rules for when you use the aorist, and to keep it simple, it treats it as present simple for now.
O means he
Among other things.
why it was wrong
Nobody can see what you wrote, so references to "it" or "my answer" are not helpful.
When you have a question, please
- take a screenshot that clearly shows the question and your entire answer
- upload the screenshot to a website somewhere (e.g. imgur)
- include the link to that image in your comment here asking for help
So how will u say he eats
he eats = o yer
You use o when talking about anybody, whether they are left-handed or right-handed, married or single, adult or child, male or female, Christian or Muslim, rich or poor.
Turkish doesn't have separate pronouns for any of those categories.
i write he eat
Why? That is incorrect English.
"I eat, you eat, we eat, they eat" but "he eats, she eats, it eats".
the right answer " it eat"
Really? It showed you the wrong sentence "it eat" instead of "it eats"? Do you have a screenshot of that error? Perhaps that will make it easier to find and fix.
