If I'm accurately understanding ShengfenLe's question, "The cat is lying on the bed" would translate as: "Kedi yatakta uzanıyor".

İ think yatak comes from yatmak which means to sleep

Yes they are related. But sleeping : uyumak, it might also mean "yatmak" but only in certain occasions.

How it would be, if the cat is not sleeping, she just lie down the bed?

Hello ShengfenLe

"Kedi yatakta uyuyor." Translation: The cat is sleeping in the bed or on it.

"Kedi yatağın üstünde uzanır" - The cat is lying on the bed. (Stretched out) & lazy.

In English there is a difference between the meaning of "in the bed" and "on the bed." "In the bed" means under the covers. "On the bed" implies on top of the bedcovers or on a bare mattress or open bed perhaps. It implies there is no covering over the sleeper. How does Turkish make this distinction, if it does so? Thanks.

I am not sure what you are asking :) Can you reword it?

If the sentence says that "the cat is sleeping IN the bed", that means that she is physically sleeping inside the bed, not on the bed, or? I know that the translation "on the bed" is accepted too.. but i am interested in the answer for "in the bed".

I guess it's again bad English on Duo's Side.

So, "The cat SLEEPS" in the bed" would be: "Kedi yatakta uyur"?
