Sometimes, like in this case, it is really hard to understand what the robot says in the normal mode even for a native ear. It is because intonations become very weird occasionaly. Hope this will be fixed in the near future.
Yep...you cannot "be in the Moon" unless you go under the surface. You can only use "have been in" for buildings and things that you can physically enter.
Firstly thanks for all your replies and then sorry for bothering you :)
Yes, i can imagine how bad to be in the Moon :) (I could not decide whether my former sentence is correct or not) It is my fault. I did not explain my question. I just wondered if "I have been to Italy" and "I have been in Italy" are exactly the same for example.
Nope, it sounds really weird to say "I have been in Italy." Really "to" is almost always right and "in" rarely is.
I have been "to/in" that museum before diye olur ama "I have been in Turkey" diye olmaz.
I don't know about totally correct grammatically but it definitely doesn't sound weird. I have heard people say it for sure.
I have been in Cyprus - Correct.
Lots of caves beneath the surface.
Thank you & a like ^ & lingot.
You can say 'I had been in turkey all this while' or 'when the incident took place I had been in Turkey' otherwise it's 'I have been to turkey before and I plan on visiting again.' For example.
@ Alex - Peyman is right! If you are within the borders of a country then you are "in" that country! Kind of an "intransitive" meaning versus "to" a country which connotes a kind of "transitive" meaning. Both are correct in their appropriate context.
From an Earthbound point of view, men could be within the domain of "the moon". Also, note the reference "the moon" because there are more moons than just one.
You can't be in the Earth either. Unless, of course, you're deep in a cave or BURIED! :)
Gitti =went Gitmiş =has gone Has been=olmuş, bulunmuş So the chosen translation is not convincing
who goes to the moon ?? =Kim ay'a gitti ------Who has been to the moon??=Kim ay'da bulundu.... am i wrong??
I am going to Paris, not to THE Paris, because there is one Paris, I think MOON is also the same and the is not necessary
There are a lot of moons in our Solar System. The name of the Earth's moon is Luna. Therefore, I'm going to the moon, as in I'm going to the city. Otherwise "I am going to Luna" which is a moon as well as "I am going to Paris" which is a city! :) You can look it up. What is the name of your city? What is the name of your moon? By the way, everyone, three years is a long time to have a discussion on the English language. The English language has a name for our moon: it is "Luna".
@peyman i think there might be other moons that are present in our galaxy so the 'the' here to specify it is the moon related to our own planet earth and also the sun in our galaxy the english speaking natives can correct me if i am wrong
Kim Ay'a gitti"? = "Who went (has gone) to the moon"?
**“Kim Ay'a gitmiş" = "Who has been to the moon"?
Regadring the use of "in" and "to"...
I went to Turkey last summer. I was in Antalya during August. There was an earthquake inTurkey in August.
"Have you been to Turkey"? (Grammatically correct)
"Have you been in Turkey"? (Grammatically incorrect)
"Were you in Turkey last summer". (Grammatically correct)
