Gomlegimi, if I'm not mistaken is gomlek-im-i. So isn't that the Genitive, and then Accusitive? I have been told more than once, that we can't use more than one case at a time. Am I missing something?
except for possessive :) Actually it is not really a case for us (at least in school in Turkey in Turkish lessons, we don't learn it as a "case" )
You can combine possessive with any other case
The genitive ending -(n)In is a case, but the possessive suffixes are free game! :D
Wow! I had completely missed the difference between Possesive and Genitive. So Can I check....
My Cat - (benim) Kedim
My dog - Kopegim
The cat's dog - kedin kopegi
My cats' dog - kedimin kopegi
Is that right?
the cat's dog = kedi-(n)in köpeği
my cat's dog = kedim-in köpeği
Ah, thanks. I forgot the (n) for words ending with a consonant.
gömlek = shirt...
gömleğim = my shirt...
then why did we put "i" in "gömleğim(i)" ??????
Because you need to state the accusative suffix (i) you say (i want to find my shirt) which means (shirt/gömlek) is accusative.
yes, I figured that out. tesekkur ederim
