Quote:abla

as a thumb rule

 

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

Come back next year.

gelecek yılda geri gelecksin

Gelecek yıl geri gel.

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.)

 

 Abla, I hope you dont mind me making a tiny correction on one of your translation.

 

 

A visit to the zoo would be nice.

Hayvanat bahçesini ziyaret iyi olur.

Hayvanat Bahçesi + n[buffer n] + i[accusative ]

I just want to give some  info on Locative case marking in Time expressions.

 

 

 

If the time “year” was plural then we need to add "locative case"

 

Önümüzdeki yıllarda gelsinler.

Let them come [with] in forthcoming years.

 When locative case marking occurs in quantified time expressions, it indicates the time "within".

 

The postposition "içinde" is often used instead of simple locative marking such as; Önümüzdeki günlerde = Önümüzdeki günler içinde

                 [With] in forthcoming days

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.

(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.)

Merhaba herkese,

It was very helpful for me to read your replies and learn more grammar but my specific question to any of our dear native speakers is this : if you go back and check my translation attempt ,was it TOO BAD? did I make sense at least a bit?  I have been studying turkish for years but still, it´s not perfect! so I want to know how good or bad I am doing so far.

Lutfen,çok  tesekkurler !

Guney Amerika´dan selamlar,

Dilara.
