why not Öğretmen kahveyi içer since kahve here is accusative ?!
Notice, it does not say "The teacher drinks the coffee." The accusative is only used for specific direct objects :)
Oh yeah I got it....Thanks :)
If it were "The teacher drinks THE coffee," would 'coffee' have to add a suffix:
Öğretmen kahveyi içer. accusative ending : -(y)I
Thanks again: Bir kez daha tesekkur ederim (excuse characters).
why " içer " not " içiyor " ?
Içer means the teacher drinks( as part of routine) while içiyor is the present continuous which means the teacher is drinking coffee
"Muallim kahve içer" neden namakbul?
Doesn't hoca mean teacher?
It is an alternative word and is accepted.
Is there difference between school teacher and university teacher? Or can öğretmen as well as hoca be used for all level of schools?
