in another example they said : bu köpek kimin ?? and now it is : kimin çayı o ?? so my question is : where and when should I put the word (kimin) ?? at the beginning or at the end ?? or both( doesn't matter) ?? so can I say : o çay kimin ?? and if yes should I say çay or çayı ?
Exactly. "kimin" is in the genitive case
Why o is at the end of the sentence? Could we say "kimin o çayı" or "o çay kimin"?
Is there any website that can teach us how to use the question words in a sentence (order of words and where to add the question word). I used this website http://www.turkishclass.com/turkish_lesson_71 but checking if there is an easy one for beginners like me. Thank you
What exactly do you need help understanding? I could explain for you :)
I have the same confusion as salam's Kimin çayı o? = O çay kimin? ....are both the same meaning??
Very close in meaning. In the first, the subject is "whose tea" Whose tea is that? In the second the subject is "that tea". Whose is that tea? It is a grammatical difference more than a difference in meaning.
Note that English changes the position of the subject in order to keep the question word at the beginning of the sentence, while in Turkish, çay is used when it is the subject but çayı when it is the thing possessed and kimin changes position.
