"Whose are the shoes?"
In English we don't say whose are the shoes. We say Whose are those shoes...or Whose shoes are those? Whose shoes are these? because shoes are plural. "Whose are the shoes?" isn't grammatically correct.
Why not "ayakkabilari(i pointless) kimin"= "the shoes of whom are they?" Shoes with the possessive suffix in turkish.
Today, i realize that "ayakkabilar" is the subject of the verb "whose are" = "kimin". Am i right?
