could we say bicak mutftakta yok?
Why this "hiç" here?
Why are the knives not plural in Turkish language?
Perhaps it would help you to think of it as "There is not a single knife in the kitchen".
Also, Turkish uses singular a lot after counting words, both numbers and indefinites such as "çok" or "birkaç".
I answered : bıçaklar
and it was not accepted!!?
Would this be possible: mutfakta bıçak değil?
Thank you! :-)
I think that would be "In the kitchen, it's not a knife."
You would need yok for "there are no" rather than değil for "it is not".
