"He became sad because I cut the dress with scissors."
Translation:Makas ile elbiseyi kestiğim için o üzüldü.
I don't understand the word order in this sentence. Why is "kestiğim" not before "elbiseyi"? I understood that this construction is used as an adjective, which normally is standing before the noun. Here it is placed after the noun. How the sense of the sentence changes if I write " Makas ile kestiğim elbiseyi için o üzüldü"? Is it because of "için" in that place, that my sentence is wrong? If so could I say instead "çünkü makas ile kestiğim elbiseyi o üzüldü?"
"Kestiğim için" means "because I cut", whereas "elbiseyi için" means "because of the dress". So "makas ile kestiğim elbiseyi için o üzüldü" is translated "he became sad because of the dress which I cut with scissors".
Also, if you want to use çünkü, the sentence structure becomes similar to that in English: "o üzüldü çünkü elbiseyi makas ile kestim". I hope this was useful
So just a coincidence. Thanks. It seems like Turkish has been very resistant to borrowing verbs.
Maybe you know this, but the noun formation in a Semitic language that begins with M is short for "what or who does this verb." So makas would be what cuts. That's why I wondered if Kes was an Arabic root.
Be careful. Both the forms for "one who performs an action" and "one upon whom an action is performed" can begin with m- in Semitic languages.
For example, makas (مقص in Arabic) literally means "clipper" while maqsûs (مقصوص) means "clipped". You have to look at the internal vowels to tell the difference.
It is definitely wrong. It sounds better to use the dative case or için with üzülmek. The dative case also sounds a bit more off than "için" here for me at least, but I am no native speaker. Let me check on that.
(I checked). It does sound a bit off, especially when using it with -DIk. "kesmeme üzüldüm" is fine though.
