"Bu kimin şemsiyesi?"

Translation:Whose umbrella is this?

The tooltip is not working properly for "şimsiyesi" - it does not give the hint that it means "umbrella"

How is Semsiyesi third person plural?

June 10, 2015


it is third person singular actually. şemsiye-si

June 10, 2015


You mean "şemsiyeleri"? (Their umbrellas)

Is this used only for things protecting against the sun (to give shade) or also against the rain?

June 22, 2015


It is used for both.

İs this word Turkish origin or not? This word makes me think of the word شمسية from Arabic. The root word is شمس which means sun.

Edit: I've checked it in my Arabic dictionary, شمسية (şamsiyah) means umbrella. Bu kelime kesinlikle arapçadan. "Kelime" de arapçadan.

Is <whose this umbrella> wrong English?

March 31, 2017


Yes, it is.

The verb is missing, so it is not a complete sentence.

And it's not a noun phrase, either, since the two determiners "whose" and "this" can't both stand before the same noun like that.

Oh, so in this instance "is" is the verb?

April 8, 2017


That's right.

"Parasol" was not accepted as a translation of şemsiye, although that is technically the most accurate translation. Is şemsiye regularly used for a rain umbrella rather than yağmurluk? (I am thinking of the difference in German between Sonneschirm and Regenschirm). I realize that Turkey's climate is different from northern Europe, so perhaps the distinction may be unimportant there.

If you allow I will play guessing, as Turkish is my weaker side. Şems is sun when translating from Arabic. But in Turkish sun is guneş. And on google translate "parasol" is Guneş şemsiyesi. I mean, for me, there is sense to say guneş şems... for parasol. Sorry if I am wrong.

“Whose umbrella this is?” is not correct in English.

And “true” is not the correct word here, either.

Whose umbrella is this? is not accepted but we would say this in England
