Would it be the same if you said

yeterli yağ var?

What's the difference in meaning between yeterince and yeterli?

https://www.duolingo.com/LiliumAgri

yeterince is ALWAYS an adverb and will modify adjectives and verbs. It's generally more like "sufficiently" or "... to suffice"

yeterli is GENERALLY an adjective and will modify nouns. It's generally translatable as "enough X" or "sufficient X"

So

  • yeterince yağ var. = There's oil enough to suffice.

  • yeterli yağ var. = There's sufficient oil.

Not a HUGE difference here, but other sentences are more picky. If you're modifying a verb, you'll have to use yeterince. yeter or yeterli won't work: "Yeterince bekledim." = I've waited enough.

Yetmek: To be enough, to suffice.

Yeter: It is enough, it suffices.

Yeterli: Enough, sufficient,

Yeterince: Enough, sufficient, sufficiently

'Yeterli' can only be used as a adjective while 'yeterince' can be both an adjective and adverb.

'Yeterince' can be both an adjective and adverb' is in contrast to LiliumAgri's statement, 'yeterince is ALWAYS an adverb'. Please clarify; thank you!

There is not much to say but for example you can say

'Yeterince param yok.' (I don't have enough money.) or

'Bugün yeterince su içtim.'(I drank enough(sufficient amount of) water today.)

But 'yeterince' might have a more limited use and i guess there are places where only one of them can be used.

That would be "Yağ yeter." :) The "var" really means "there is" :)

Hmm, I'm in Ankara, Turkey right now and I have never heard "yeterince" used in public. Is this used in other places in Turkey like in the south or the east?

What about "that's enough oil". I imagined two people, one pouring the oil until the other said something.

Do you consider "that's enough oil" to be the same as "there's enough oil"? I don't.

Can yeterince be used with countable things? e.g. "Yeterince kedi (-ler?) var" for "There are enough cats"?

In English, at least in contemporary usage, "enough" comes after an adjective to specify the degree of that adjective (eg. "good enough", "big enough", "rich enough", "far enough") and before a noun to specify amount ("enough money", "enough water", "enough rice", "enough people", "enough oil").

Basically, you can't say "There's oil enough." (There are potentially dialects where the rules are a bit different, and older forms of English seemed to have different rules too, but what I've said applies to most varieties of modern English.)

Is kafi not used as much as yeterince and yeterli?

no, it is not used as much as yeterince and yeterli. kafi is an old-fashioned word. older people generally use it

It's funny that you guys have stopped using some of the words I consider the coolest: zira, lakin, kafi.

If someone ever asks me why I use these old-sounding words, I'll just say I watch too many Turkish soaps.
