A good chance to learn a usual type of Turkish relative clauses:

 

en sev|diğ|im yemek ´the food which I like the most´

en sev|diğ|in yemek ´the food which you like the most´

en sev|diğ|i yemek ´the food which she likes the most´

en sev|diğ|imiz yemek ´the food which we like the most´

en sev|diğ|iniz yemek ´the food which you (pl.) like the most´

en sev|dik|leri yemek ´the food which they like the most´

 

If the person was added it would take the genitive form: Ayşe´nin en sevdiği yemek.

 

This pattern is used when the relative pronoun of the English sentence is the object of the clause: which (O) I (subject) like (predicative).

 

Of course a better way to translate it would be ´my favourite...´.

 

Thank you for your attention.

 However, if the person we are trying to give more information about is the subject of the clause they are in, then the suffixes are "en" and "an"

 

Beni seven adam = the man who loves me

Sevdiğim adam = the man I love

 

Beş senedir Türkçe öğrenmekte olduğu halde, hálá Türkçe konuşamayAN adam = The man who still can´t speak Turkish although he has been learning [it] for five years.
