"The" is driving me crazy
"Ayı şekeri yer." The bear eats the sugar.
The first, "the" is the subject definite article for, "bear" in English because "bear" is a countable noun & needs an article.
The second, "the" is for the definite direct object in the accusative case, "şeker + -i" because it is actioned by the verb, "yer."
The (accusative) case in Turkish is used to mark specific direct objects.
