The rule

DIR does NOT mean v. to be with 3rd person singular.

The rule

3 rd person singular does not take a suffix

As in



Ýyi...not iyidir ´grammatically but you can hear it used in daily speech´


´´´The -dir has more to do with generalisation, building statements based on common facts and swiching from personal voice to common voice. ´´´

Let´s read more about it

Here  from post 11, 22, 24


And more

the suffixe -dir in both 3rd singular and plural person can be used in a dictionary, encyclopedia... things like that.


As we´re not one of these, we don´t give a fig about it
