How does someone know if you are saying "she reads him a book" or "he reads her a book". How do you make that distinction?
we don't distinct it. we can only know from the context.
If the gender is that important, you can always use "adam" or "çocuk" for the guy and "kadın" or "kız" for the girl.
When do you use "adam" and when do you use "erkek"
We dont use to adam for specifying the gender and if u use 'sen adamsın' turks understand it as 'you are good man'
Both should be correct, but it didn't accept this from me 'He reads her a book' . Why?
Are there reflexive pronouns in Turkish? For example, "He reads himself a book", would it be different?
Yes, that would be rendered with "kendi".
O kendine bir kitap okur.
"O" means:he, she, it
In Turkish there is no differentiation between female and masculine. No indication here that it is a 'she'.
O it means in turkish (he/she/it) so why "He reads him a book" not true
why "he reads him a book "is false?
that is an accepted answer. If you see a multiple choice question, it is written there choose ALL correct answers
I don't understand how this can be it reads her a book? Surely it's he reads her a book.?
O = He/She/It
He reads it was considerd wrong !!!
Why 'He reads her a book' is false ?
He reads a book to her, was not accepted. How do we know if O is a he or she?
O is everything.. It can be used to refer to she, he, it, an alien, a zombie.. etc.
I like how the language doesn't give that importance to gender.
Since when does "O" not go for both male and female
