Hi! I wonder if it exists any way to express, in turkish, a gradual action, and in special a gradual imperative.

For example, I was listening to a mexican song, and it says "vete olvidando" (literally it´s go by forgetting, an it means yo can forget little by little).

It´s not easy to explain some local idioms. I hope you could understand. Thanks in advance.

nati´m, for gradually increasing, decreasing, improving, developing, reducing, etc. there also are the following two adverbs: zamanla, giderek (as in zamanla unutulur, giderek unutursun,.. )
