 çok teƃĀ¾ekkür ederim..

 

 But sonunda.. I have read in a website about it and it said that " I have " :  -miƃĀ¾imdir..

if it´s not right please can you explain what happens to the verb when we put -miƃĀ¾dir ?

 

ĆƒÅ¾imdiden teƃĀ¾ekkür ederim.

I´ve never seen this ´miƃĀ¾imdir´ ending on a verb so I don´t understand what you are asking.

 

The -miƃĀ¾dir ending is a special case and can mean, in English, ´I expect or must have.

eg ´unutmuƃĀ¾tur´ -she must have forgotten

OR it is used in official announcements.

eg ´tren gelmiƃĀ¾tir´ the train has arrived.

Hello caliptrix,sonunda, canli ... glad to see all of you still helping us out so nicely.  My problem ishandling conversation.  I understand most things when I have the luxury of sitting down in comfort and reading ´dilbilgisi´ at leisure.  My ´functional´ Turkish also enables me to cope with basic task of making myself understood [applaud the intelligence of the listner] ... but listening to ´native´ speakers in an open conversation ... and understanding what is being said ... I find very difficult (a) because of accent and colloquial expression (b) lack of listening skill.  I visit Turkey [Antalya] for a couple of months in a year ... and when I am back for the rest of the years ... my Turkish evaporates into thin air!!!  Of course I am in my late 70s ... and a dim bulb at best.  I envy you lot ... but tell me shall I continue to live in HOPE of ever being able to become more than functional????

Actually none of the 3 users you mentioned have posted in a log time.

For conversation, perhaps some Turkish Programs are worth a try. These are a few:
