When the subject is the same in the two clauses, using "ve" isn't really required in Turkish. You could use it, but it might sound a bit clunky.

Can someone explain why you can say 'Sen et yer çay içersin.' too, with regards to using yer instead of yersin?

3 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/Ektoraskan

Both are accepted. For the aesthetics, the conjugations of the previous verbs can be left out if they all share the same subject.

what does ''siz'' means?

3 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/Sonya561920

siz is the plural of you.

It is also formal singular you. Like the difference between Sie and du.

Although German also has an informal plural. A more perfect analogy would be with French.

That's the German informal plural, yes. Unlike the French and Turkish plurals, it's not used formally (no matter how many people are involved).

This is impossible. If you use the suffix -(y)ip, you cannot use "ve" after it. :) It would be "Sen et yeyip çay içersin"

What's the difference between sen iç and sen içersin? How do we know which one to use?

1 year ago

https://www.duolingo.com/BahattinB

"Sen iç!" is the imperative form: "Drink!"

The sentence "Sen içersin." is in the Present Simple Tense: "You drink."

I put "et yeyip çay içersin", but it was refused. Is it because there is a name between the two verbs ?

Duo's answer : "et yer çay içersin." Really ??? What is surprising me is the "yer" for a second person.

5 months ago

https://www.duolingo.com/BahattinB

It is OK because the suffix "-sin" in the verb "içersin" already indicates that the subject is "sen" (you).

No, that is grammatically incorrect. For 'You(plural) eat meat.' you would say 'Siz(optional) et yersiniz.'.
