Benim adım Ben. Ben'in adamın adı Adam.
"Ben'in adamın adı Adam"
Should that mean "Ben's man's name is Adam?"
That would be 'Ben'in adamının adı Adam.'.
Ben'in(genitive) adam(man)-ı(third person singular possessive)-n(buffer letter)-ın(genitive) ad(name)-ı(third person singular possessive) Adam.
Ben'in adamının adı
So what is "Ben'in adamın adı Adam" exactly supposed to mean?
That doesn't mean anything.
What is buffer latter?
Where is the tips and notes in android app????
It is not present. Refer browser on desktop PC or cellphone
Shouldn't we say "Benim adım Selcenim. " ?
No you shouldnt. Benim adım selcen just right one. You said like my name is my selcen
ım in adım refer to possession, where is the "is" so?
Benim adim selcenim, here im in selcen refer to verb to be "is".
Can you explain?
Would "Benim adım" be used interchangeably with Ben Selcen? I know literally one means I am and one means my name is but in an introduction, at least in english, you could say either.
yes you can say both in an introduction.
What about Ismin?
Well.. it's required to translate the sentence to English.. and that includes the name too.. right.. so why when I wrote Selgen like this.. it wasn't OK??!! CE in English is pronounced S.
When I was in Turkey, I went by "Alex" and not "Aleks." You should (at least in this course) keep names in their original form :)
Also, changing it to a -g wouldn't give you the correct pronunciation, but a -j would.
On google translate they use onun adını for his name but according to the lesson and tips and notes it should be onun adı (and this is what was mentioned before in a comment). Are they both true?
They are both ok, but in different situations. "onun adını" is the accusative case while 'onun adı" is the nominative.
Also, I would try to avoid using Google Translate for Turkish. It is pretty bad at it! :)
Nerelisiniz Selcen ve Nereye oturuyorsunuz?
So if one was to say "my horse" would that not be identical to benim adım due to the softening in "at" from the t --> d?
Benim adim Neveen Zanubya.
Benim adım Adam, ve adamın adı Adam.
This is a fun language.
