No Apostrophe.

 

Memleket veya köken bildiren yapım eki -lı birleşik yazılır. Örnek: İstanbullu, Amerikalı, Türkiyeli. Yabancı yer isimlerinde -lı eki kesme işareti ile ayrılır ancak yabancı ismin Türkçe kullanımı yerleştiyse ayrılmaz. Örnek:New York´lu (orijinal yazım); Kaliforniyalı, Amerikalı, Londralı (Türkçeleşmiş yazım).

* Only with in original spelling of Foreign place names , we can put apostrophe.

New York´lu
