Almost! You need to change the order in English when it´s a question. And order change in Turkish one makes some difference.

 

Ekmek neden yok ? = what is the specific reason that there isn´t any bread ?

Neden ekmek yok ?  = why isn´t there any bread ?

Ekmek neden yok ? why

Neden ekmek yok ? bread

general rule, emphasis is on the closest word to the verb.

an example of this usage:

A: Neden yok ? (why not? )

B: Ekmek az önce bitti.  ( It is just finished. )

 

 

Neden olmasın. (as an asnwer )  It is a way of saying that something is possible to do , or a way of saying yes.

A: Bu akşam yemeği dışarıda yemeye ne dersin? ( what about eating out tonight? )
