"En güzel"

Translation:The most beautiful

May 13, 2015



Why do we need "The" to begin this? "en guzel" (sorry for wrong letter) can mean "most beautiful" in English, so does this translate as "The most beautiful" because En is capitalized? Also, could "en guzel" mean "nicest?" Thanks for your help!

You always need to use the before superlative forms. It is an English grammar rule.

It could also mean the nicest but the word nice has other meanings too like kibar, hoş..

Not necessarily. The article ('the') may be omitted in many cases, and is often omitted in spoken language. See for example: http://www.perfect-english-grammar.com/superlatives.html

So, I know how to say 'this', 'house' and 'the most beautiful'. But how would I say this is the most beautiful house? Would it be 'Bu en guzel evi'?

"bu en güzel ev" - you cannot use accusative there, it is not an object in a sentence

How would you say "most are beutiful" ?

Is there a separate superlative form for adjectives, or does Turkish just use "more/most" for that?

Hello everyone, can 'güzel' also mean gorgeous or attractive? Or is it strictly in translation to 'beautiful'?

The comparative and the superlative in Turkish! Really a mystery to me so far. How can we compare two things or persons?
