When should I add the suffix -tür? is it ok to just say büyüktür?
When you mean ALL the horses are very big; thus make it an encyclopaedical information, you use -tür.
Is this akin to the difference between "apples are big" and "apples are big (in this orchard)"? Would the first use -tür?
Can I say "atlar cok büyük"?
it is accepted as a solution so i would guess so. With that being said i wonder what context would require the ''to be'' suffıx
I think yes: when you say "the horses [implied of my neighour] are big".
When you speak specific objects, animals, etc....
Yes, that's it.
hmmm, why not "büyüklar" i am wondering? what am i missing? 3rd person plural. should i be looking at the noun or the adverb to determine the ending for büyüktür?
hmmm... I guess you can say "atlar çok büyükler". It's unusual, but I've added it.
Can we use "atlar çok büyükler"? I mean "Atlar" are a group of animal, is it OK to say "atlar çok büyükler" in this case?
It's not incorrect, but everyone say Atlar çok büyük.
Why ending tur means are
Siman, Ektoraskan answers to your question in his comment above. You can also read in Duolingo Turksih Grammar Portal his explanations. Here: https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/8649151. Thanks.
İ don't think büyükler is correct.
İ read that:
İ see a car = Bir araba görüyorum.
İ see 2 cars = iki araba görüyorum.
The "iki" indicates that it's plural alread. So araba doesn't become arabalar. Same for büyükler.
İ hope this helps someone
Or we don't need to say "ler" at the end because we have plural with "atlar"
When does büyük become büyüktur? İm guessing only when the word are is involved

Why atlar çok büyüktür and not çok büyük
"atlar çok büyüktür" because it a fact that horses are big animals, even though small horses exist: even small, they are big animal, compared to spider...even if horses are smaller than elephants.
I still don't understand why "büyüktür"?
"Horses are very big."
Translation: Atlar çok büyüktür.
Atlar çok büyük.
Correct other Turkish answer accepted by Duo without using the -tür suffix.
I would say "Atlar çok büyükler" because it just sounds better for me. I live in a turkish family, but my turkish is not that good, so is it wrong to say büyükler? Or just not common?
