Why doesn't ben come first?
In this instance, emphasis is on "ben", it is me eating the sugar, not him kind of thing.
So you mean that if I say "Şekeri ben yerim" the emphasis is in who eats the sugar (I, in this case); and if I say "Ben Şekeri yerim" I am emphasizing on "the sugar"?
"Ben şekeri yerim." is the standard way to order a sentence (SOV). It does put emphasis on the object, but not a very strong one as it is the standard way to go.
What if you didn't want to emphasise anything, i.e., if you want to form a neutral sentence? Could you just say "Şekeri yerim."?
Yes you can u don't have to use ben as long as there is 'im' after the verb no problem
The standard way to order a sentence is (SOV). Therefore "Şekeri yerim." does not put an 'extra' emphasis on the object "şekeri".
OK! Thanks for your response!
But this sentence is being translated into Turkish from English, so really it could be translated correctly either way, yes?
This sentence is used with a variety of exercises. But for the exercise that you describe: yes, it can be translated either way.
Even I was thinking the same
Ben Sekeri yerim
when I put after object i or ı ??
Check out the grammar explanation "Accusative Case and 4-Way Vowel Harmony".
Last vowel of the word (Object):
A - | -> | ;
E - i -> i ;
O - U -> U ;
Ö - Ü -> Ü .
"Şekeri ben yerim." -> It' you, Yoda?
I love turkish but i think it is little bit difficult
Is it commonplace to drop the subject when the verb determines who is doing the action? Such as eti yerim?
It is very, very common to drop it. :)

Why "şekeri yerim" is wrong ?
It isn't wrong and is accepted as correct.
wait how is it (seker ben yerim) i know that you must put the (ben) at first or forget it how does this work can someone explain please?
"Ben" can be put both at the start and the mid. It depends on "stress"
Ben şekeri yerim
The normal/formal/unstressed form of sentence.
Şekeri ben yerim
The stress is on "I" (as in I ate the sugar, not someone else)
No stress on "I" /casual way to talk
şeker=sugar. şekeri=the sugar
How do you say "i eat gorilla" and "gorilla eats me" ?
how to know if i want to put "şeker" or "şekeri".... when I add "i" at the end of the sentence?
Şeker yerim = I eat sugar
Şekeri yerim = I eat the sugar.
The -i/ı suffix on the direct object signifies that it's a specific, rather than unspecified/general object.
Hope that helps.
Why sekeri comes first in this case?
Does the ACC of Shekeri influence the word order? Maybe it's o.k. to use both word orders?
Some sentences (Sub. + şekeri (Obj.) + V.)
This one (Şeker (Obj.) + Sub. + V.)
normally the correct answer is ben şekeri yerim
What is the diffirence betwin "Ben şekri yerim" and "Şekri ben yerim"??
Note: The same iz correct
In the basics, the English sentence structure is as follows: subject object verb. Why it's not " ben sekeri yerim"?
You can also use "Şekeri yerim" as = I "would" or "will" eat the sugar
In the tips is explained that consonants may change e.g. k -> g. My solution "ben segeri yerim" is accepted but has also been corrected to "Ben sekeri yerim". Which is correct and when will consonants change?
Would it be correct to say - 'şekeri yerim' ?
ben seker yerim
