I think this has been explained here before, I might even have started the thread myself but I can't find it anmymore.. So would someone please be so kind to explain the difference, preferably with some examples to illustrate them?

burası - burada
şurası - şurada
orası - orada
neresi - nerede

Thank you

We took a seat and listened to them here.
Oturduk ve onları burada dinledik.


This is where we listened to them.
Burasi onlari dinledigimiz yer.

Sultan Mehmet meydaný nerede ?

Sultan Mehmet meydaný burasý.

 

Where is Sultan Mehmet square ?

Sultan Mehmet square is here .

 

Can we use burada instead of burasý here?

Guys, any help with this ?!

 

 both can be used,

 

i dont think there is a strict or grammatical explanation for this to seperate from eachother... but it comes from use of language and the conditions you have in your dialog

 

confusing but i believe you have the same things for arabic

"Here" (bura) and "there" (ora) are like any other noun in turkish.

And same rules apply to them. They take the same noun suffixes; "case suffixes: -de, -e, -den, -i ...

 

Buraya gel.  --> Come here. In turkish "come to here" because with the verb "come", -e suffix is used.

 

Burada yaþýyorum. --> I live here. In turkish with the verb "yaþamak" (to live), -de suffix is used like in "Türkiye´de yaþýyorum".

 

Burayý çok seviyorum.---> I like here a lot. With "sevmek", accusative is used.

 

Though when with no suffix cases (like when "here" is the subject of the sentence", either "bura" or "burasý" is used. (most of the time "burasý")

 

Bura çok güzel. --> Here is very nice.

Burasý çok güzel.

 

 

And in "burasý", the -i suffix is the possessif suffix. Why possesif is used? Maybe this example can explain better:

- (Vücudunun) Neresi aðrýyor? Where is hurting? Which part of your body is hurting?

- Burasý aðrýyor. --> Here is hurting, but in fact "here of my body" though it´s cut and just "burasý" is used.

 

This is my try.
