Sorry, but last week in my Turkish class, the teacher gave me a lesson from the TÖMER course : Biçimce olumsuz anlamaca olumlu : kimi cümlelerde olumsuzluk eki bulunduğu halde anlam olumludur. Seni aramadı değil (aradı)..... So that is meaning the opposite of what is here, and she is native Turkish.
OK, so literally it is "No (hayir), nothing (hiçbir şey) is not (değil) fine (iyi)"
but it means "No, nothing is fine"
so 'değil' has no meaning in this sentence?
Is this how everybody says it or just some people?
Can we say "Hayir, hiçbir şey ıyı"?
If it doesn't mean "no, nothing is fine" what does it mean?
