is there a rule for however we use u instead of i or ı for the accusative form ? for exemple, su we say suyu and çay we say çayi
Here are very useful Turkish grammer videos, two of them on vowel harmony.
There is an answer for your question but i want to say a thing: in Turkish Latin Alphabet, i (upper case İ) and ı (upper case I) are different letters so we don't say "çayi", we say "çayı"
it could be either sen or siz. They both mean you. Siz is more formal and you can also use it for the plural you. It's like "du" vs. "Sie" in German.
or like vous and tu in french. the first one (siz/vous) is plural or formal, while the second (sen/tu) is singular /informal
Is it common to omit the pronoun since the verb ending communicates on its own who is referred to?
May be ther is rule when to use u or i in the end of the the word? And in su it beacuas you cant write suu?
Scroll up as the table for this has been posted.
I translated it as "You eat a lemon." Is that different than you eat the lemon, and how?
Yep, that sentence is "Siz lemon yersiniz." The accusative case makes a big difference! You should check out the notes before the lesson, which can be viewed on the website
Scroll up the important vowel harmony table has been posted above.
Both are accepted :)
"yersin" is singular and informal. "yersiniz" is plural and/or formal.
Siz takes yersiniz (plural or formal)
Sen takes yersin (singular)
There is unfortunately nothing we can do to change the audio at this point. :/
Does using simple present tense make sense grammatically when using the accusative form? I mean '' I (usually) eat the lemon''...Doesn't this specific lemon get over? In my understanding, this would only make sense as ''I am eating the lemon (at the moment)'' or ''I ate the lemon (in the past)''
Would you guys suggest a good original online dictionary, cuz googletranslate is sick!
turend or seslisozluk are pretty good. wikitionary isn't bad either
No disrespect, but there's a typo: it should be
tureng, as in Turkish-English. :-)
(Many thanks for all you do here, Alex!)
Is there a a form to put "i" -çayi- after some words and " u " -limonu- after another ???
I didn't understand the difference between "limon" "limonu" and the difference between "yersinuz" "yersin"
Can someone please tell me.^-^
