shouldn't it be 'vardır' ?
Good point, I would like to know that as well.
Why not... how many oceans exist. ... are there sounds quite unfamiliar
As a native English speaker, I can tell you "are there" is more common. "Var" is generally translated as "there is / there are".
Exist or even "how many oceans do exist"
Beş okyanus var.
why is it not "okyanusler"?
first of all okyanuslar due to the vowel harmony
but we always use singular nouns after numbers, and also after "kaç tane" which is asking for a number
So are these right?:
kaç tane kedi var?
kaç tane köpek var?
kaç tane erkek var?
kaç tane kız var?
Thanks in advance!
I wonder what word the great Piri Reis used for ocean.
