So when would we use this version of both, as opposed to ikisi de or ikisini de?
When the subject/object consists of two things, of the SAME KIND, we use 'ikisi' or 'ikisini'. When the subject/object are not of the same kind, but have the same property, or do the same thing etc... we use 'hem... hem de...' Example: 'Both the dresses are blue.'= 'Elbiselerin ikisi de mavi.' as opposed to 'Both the dress and the skirt is blue.'='Hem elbise hem de etek mavi.'
Yes. During my stay in Alanya, we lived in a hotel and next to that hotel was a store called ‘DENİZ MARKET’, so, yes, apparently Deniz is also a name. :)
Uhm, why are there 2 "hem"? I mean, am I forced to sorround the first word with those?
Oh, so it works as in 'ya X ya da Y'. Teşekkürler!
How do you say "ocean" as opposed to "sea" ?
("The ocean is both blue and green" is not accepted as of 2/11/19 but I am not reporting it at this time.)
