Konuşmak yerine biraz iş yap!    Aynı anlam mı?

Do some work instead of talking!  Is it the same meaning?

1. The main difference between these two constructions is ;  - MAKTANSA [ -mektense ] is used more like for the purpose of  comparing  the actions.

 

 If we take the same examples above ;

 

Konuşmaktansa  iş yapmayı  yeğlerim. [ Instead of talking I prefer getting on with my job ]

 

In the sentence above, we prefer one action to another. 

=====================

 

2. Note that we still can use - ACAĞINA with comparisons. 

 

Konuşacağıma  iş yapmayı  yeğlerim.  [ Instead of  talking I prefer getting on with my job]

 

=====================

Yes, it gives the same meaning, however I ,for some reason, would go for -acağına instead of  "yerine"  , Smile it sounds more natural to me. 

 

* it is may be because  "yerine" is used more for comparing NOUNS.

Kahve yerine çayı  tercih ederim. ----> I prefer tea instead of coffee. 

 

we compare two nouns there. and  naturally we can not use -mektense or -acağına since we are not comparing actions in that sentence.

Rica ederim , Henry.

 

And one last thing, when we use -acağına form especially for the second singular person [you], it has bit harsh, telling off meaning.

Bilgisayarın başında oturacağına git yemeğini ye !  ------> Instead of sitting in front of computer, go and eat your meal !
