Bu şehir seviyor musun?

 

Merhaba Nifrtity

I notice you still have problems with ´I love/like´ sentences using sevmek.

When you look in a Turkish dictionary for sevmek, you should see something like

/i sevmek

This means the object that you love/like needs to have an ´accusative´ suffix added. [*and it needs vowel harmony, so it can be ı/i/u/ü]

I love you (you = sen, to love = /i sevmek)

sen + i = seni seviyorum

I love her [her/him/it = o]

O + n (buffer letter) + u (* see above) = onu seviyorum

These sentences you posted earlier

I like watching films.

Film izlemeyi seviyorum.

I like my school.

Okulumu seviyorum.

 

 

 

I hope you now understand that for sevmek, the subject needs an accusative suffix (*)

Back to your translation attempt.

Do you like the town?  or Do you like this city?

Do you like = seviyor musun?   Which you translated correctly Smile  

This city = bu şehir   Which you also knew  Smile

and we now put the elements together, remembering about the accusitive suffix that you need with sevmek

bu şehir + i   seviyor musun?

 = bu şehri seviyor musun?

What happened? An ´i´ disappeared!!!! {#emotions_dlg.unsure}

(Tunci calls this vowel drop, and you can read more about

Turkish nouns that drop the final vowel, when they add certain suffixes)

Some Turkish nouns drop the final vowel

oğul = son, oğul + um = oğlum (my son)

şehir = city, şehri (the city, accusative subject)

nehir = river,  Nil Nehri = the Nile River {#emotions_dlg.bigsmile}

So hopefully you have learned 2 things from this question

1 - vowel drop on certain nouns

2 - accusative subjects in sentences

My friend is visiting me in Dresden this weekend.

Bu hafta sonunda arkadaşım Dresdende ziyaret ediyorum

 

My thoughts as a learner -

Generally the Turkish word order is

subject - time - place - object - verb

subject = my friend = arkadaşım

time = this weekend = bu hafta sonu

place = Dresden, in Dresden = Dresden´de (the apostrophe must be used before the suffix, because it is a proper noun/place name)

object = me = beni

verb = visiting = ziyaret ediyor

so I would say

Arkadaşım bu hafta sonu Dresden´de beni ziyaret ediyor.

or

Arkadaşım bu hafta sonu Dresden´de beni ziyaret edecek.

(My friend will visit me in Dresden this weekend.

my attempt is slightly different to yours -

İstasyonda onunla tanışıyorum *(if you are meeting for the first time)

(we normally meet ´with´ someone)

or

İstasyonda onunla buluşuyorum (buluşmak is used for normal meetings)

My thoughts as a learner

I´m looking forward to .........

can be said a few ways in Turkish (see number 4 here)

ona görmeye can atıyorum (* from the link above)

onu görmek için can atıyorum (my attempt, but maybe needs correction)

My try for the last part:

6

We are going to Saxon Switzerland by boat.

İsviçreyinin sakson sandalda gidiyoruz

İsviçre’deki Sakson’a gemiyle gidiyoruz.

(ile is used for vehicles. Dative case is used for going somewhere, Henry explained the use of ‘ above.)

7

Dresden is one of the most interesting and one of the nicest towns.

Dresden en ilginç ve en bir iyi şehir için iyi şehirlerde

Dresden, en ilginç ve en güzel şehirlerden biri.

(Look at the structure –lerden biri ’one of the –s’.)

8

Come back next year.

gelecek yılda geri gelecksin

Gelecek yıl geri gel.

(As a thumb rule, you can drop case endings from time expressions like this. Remember separately those which need case endings. Imperative sg 2nd = verb root.)

9

A visit to the zoo would be nice.

Bir hayvanat bahçesi ziyaretin iyi mi?

Hayvanat bahçesi ziyaret iyi olur.

(There is talk about a definite place > no bir. And it’s not a question, dear.)

10

Dresden has got nice surroundings.

İyi ortam Dresdende var

Dresden’in güzel bir çevresi var.

(nifrtity, go study possessive construction X+ gen - Y+ possessive suffix - var/yok. It is not difficult and you need it a lot.)

Hi Abla, in English the expression is "as a rule of thumb".

Now I must google how this expression evolved. Smile

something to read if you are interested
