Verb stem + sa        Repeating Verb stem + sa  


This repetitive mood expresses our guesses  about other people´s actions, abilities, probable actions. 


Example 1 : Imagine two friends sitting at home.

 it is late at night and they are expecting no one but suddenly the doorbell rings ;


A.  Kim acaba ? ----> I wonder who is that [ ringing the doorbell ]?


B.  Olsa olsa Ahmet´tir. -----> It must be Ahmet.


There is a strong guess, The person B is almost sure. It must be Ahmet. It is because may be;

 He thinks, The only person who would come at this time of the night is Ahmet. Because, Ahmet is an only person he knows that would do it. 




Example 2 :  



Hüseyin has a serious problem and he needs someone´s help to solve this problem. 

He´s thınking himself and saying ;


Bu sorunu çözse çözse Ömer çözer. 


The only person who can solve this problem is Ömer. 


He is sure that only Ömer is capable [able ] to solve this problem.




Onlar gitse gitse basket maçına gider.


Only match they would go to see is Basketball match.


Here, We are guessing their action [the action they would prefer to do] 

we are sure that only game they would go to see is basketball match.


 when we use it for past tense. 


If we use the same example above;


Onlar gitse gitse basket maçına gitmişlerdir.


They must have gone to the basketball game. 

Only place they must have gone is basketball game.
