seni is accusative of sen => sen + i

sana is dative => sen + e = sana

if you need to use accusative, then you will say seni. if you need to use dative, then sana.

***

bende is locative of ben => ben+de (in me, within me, inside me etc)

ben de is "me too". de is "too" if it is not a suffix.

***

I think you ask this because you heard different responses for wishes like "bayramın kutlu olsun" > "senin de"

and "kendine iyi bak" > "sen de"

They are different because the wishes are different. First one talks about someone´s special day. other one talks about a person.

"Be your day happy!" so you would response: "yours too"

but if one says: "be (you) happy!" you would response: "you too"

So they are different responses. You would use which is proper.

Examples;

Seni seviyorum : I love you

Seni görüyorum : I see you

Seni anlamıyorum : I don´t understand you

More about accusative.

 

Sana bakıyorum : I am looking at you (Like "to you" directional case)

Sana uygun değil : It doesn´t fit on you

Sana geliyor : She is coming to you.

More about dative.

 

Kalemin bende : Your pen is with me

Bende para yok : I don´t have money (there is no money with me)

Bende çok çorap var, sana verebilirim : I have many socks (There are many socks with me) I can give you.

More about locative.

 

Also there is a search form on the right top of this website. You can use it for more information about these terms and more.

We actually had several similar example sentences {#emotions_dlg.bigsmile}, but generally the information was the same. Next time I will not delete it, it was only because you gave more examples, and I thought your post was better.
