This is really confusing because if you translate it literally is She an apple eats..
Yeah haha, I really need to get used to the different word order. I really like it, though
Welcome to the most common word order on earth! More languages have SOV than any other (although more people speak SVO languages).
That is interesting! - "most common word order". Coming to think of it, Hindi too uses SOV format and that gives over one billion people :)
(most Indian languages use SOV order).
I kind of like it. It's different, a different way of conversing a thought, which makes it more fun learning imo. :)
Yeah Japanese is one of the SOV languages, English is one thst doesn't. I dont know any mlre that dont have it
You don't even really need Turkish there. Everyone speaks some English. ;p But it's cool that you're learning the language just for a trip :-]
I report that the answer does not consider HE or IT , whether the translation for O is either HE, SHE or IT
that's not true, we accept all of these. And if you have a multiple choice question, it is written very clearly that you should choose all correct answers
I tried to type 'He eats an apple', and I was marked wrong. 'O' is a non gender-specific pronoun right? So please change the program to reflect that. Thank you.
There is no way to distinguish between "he/she/it" in Turkish. They all just mean "o." :)
"He" yi neden kabul ediyor ? Cinsiyet belirlenmemiş ki burada ? Lütfen açıklayabilirmisin. 4 gözle öğrenmek için bekliyorum. Herkeze saygılar.
"O" he/she/it demek cunku. Oznenin cinsiyetini belmedigimiz icin ucunu de kabul ediliyor :)
how are you supposed to know if the person is referring to ''he/she/it'' which one? or does it become clear following the rest of the sentence (in a different longer sentence)?
It isn't really important information for a Turkish speaker. There is no way of knowing other than context :)
I'm sorry but I look up conjugation of yemek on verbix and they said the right conjugation for "yemek" third person is "yiyor"? I'm completely lost.
But the aorist means something thats not really happening now, or. Like: what do you like to drink? Thank you, i am confused...
So I typed "He/She/It eats an apple"... Why is this wrong? I thought 'O' meant he/she/it?????? Lol. Someone help me understand.
This is so wrong. O in turkish means he/she/it.. how the hell am i supposed to know who they talking abt. Very frustating.
You might need to address to the front of basics, that Verbs come last in Turkish. I get that this is a Arabic derived language, but please specify otherwise users will get lost by the time they are lv 5 or 6
I am not an expert, but Turkish did not derive from arabic, although it might have some influence from it. Turkish is one of the Turkik languages which "...are proposed to be part of the controversial Altaic language family."

yeah,true. However, alot of the similarities had to do with the ottaman empire and some Muslims living in Turkey.
still, it doesn't make Turkish an "arabic derived language". Turks spoke Turkish long before they met any Arabic person in their lives. All languages borrow words from other languages and due to a lot of contact Turkish borrowed many Arabic words.
