NL OKAN PANIGUIAN General Information about the language Turkish belongs to Ural-Altaic group of languages. With a few exceptions the main features which distinguish Ural-Altaic languages from the IndoEuropean languages are 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Agglutination Vowel Harmony Non-existence of gender Adjectives precede nouns Verbs always at the end of sentences

WORD ORDER RULES

1-Subject comes first it is followed by expression(s) of time next come expresion(s) of place and the last items are the personal and main object(s) which are followed at the very end by the verb 2- Modifiers appear before whatever they modify (Therefore, adjectives as well as participles and qualifying nouns precede nouns)

GRAMMAR VOWEL HARMONY When you are adding a suffix to a word, the suffix has to harmonise with the word you are adding it to. There are two types of suffixes: -E TYPE (The suffix contains a or e) - I TYPE (The suffix contains ,i,u or ) and there are two type of vowels: Front vowels
E

Back vowels
A I

O U

Example: PLURALS: To make a noun plural you add either -lar or -ler in Turkish

The noun does not take the plural ending when there is a numeral or a quantifier before it!
How will you decide which one you are going to add? A word: adam=man You want to say: men You should add -lar or -ler to adam. The last vowel in the base is: a , this is a e type suffix, so you choose a= adamlar

GRAMMAR Demonstratives
There are three Demonstratives in Turkish BU= this U= that/this (1-is generally accompanied with a gesture towards the thing referred to or 2-is sometimes used to refer to something that will be mentioned.) O = that Plural: BUNLAR = these UNLAR = those/these ONLAR = those *Demonstratives can be either Adjectives (qualify a noun) OR

Pronouns ( in place of a noun)

and are used just like the English demonstratives. ex. Bu kadn evli. Bu souk.

*As pronouns the demonstratives can take plural ending and n will be added to the base. When used as an adjective if the noun they qualify is plural they do not change . ex. u kadnlar evli unlar ucuz

Interrogatives Ne ? means "what" Kim ? means "who" Nasl ? means "how"
