Quoting trip

Here is the perspective of an English speaker and a beginner in Turkish: I agree with Abla. In English we would not use all of these small words. Some would be implied. Not being able to make out the Turkish sentence on my own, I am sort of guessing here, but this is how I would edit Gokuyum´s sentence:

Gokuyum´s: It is determined that the blue-clored object which was found on the table in the laboratory in which scientific researches are done and many scientists work, was put there by a member of an alien race which comes from an unknown planet.

Mine: It has been determined that the blue object found on the table in the lab, where many scientists work and much research is done, was placed there by an alien from an unknown planet.

And one more perspective: Turkish may use fewer words, but the strings of suffixes can be difficult for a beginner to sort. They sometimes look simply like a string of i´s and n´s that go on forever. They make my head spin! (But I am still working on developing a second brain.)  Wink

 

I also would edit Goku´s Turkish sentence:

his: Bilimsel araştırmaların yapıldığı ve birçok bilim adamının çalıştığı labaratuarda bulunan masanın üstündeki mavi renkli objenin bilinmeyen bir gezegenden gelen uzaylı bir ırkın üyesi tarafından oraya konulduğu tespit edildi.

 

mine: Birçok bilim adamının çalıştığı ARGE labaratuarındaki masadaki mavi nesnenin bilinmeyen bir gezegenden gelen bir uzaylıca oraya konduğu saptandı.

Easy for you, Gokuyum! But for me, there is so much to think about! Word order, suffixes, vowel and consonant harmony. By the time I have all that under control, I have forgotten what I wanted to say! (Not really, but almost.) But that is partly why I love Turkish. It is a puzzle for me. And when I have even a small success with the puzzle, it is very rewarding!

I will grant you this: The noun sentence is a wonderful thing. Now that is economical!

And please remember, even the world´s greatest writers need an editor from time to time. Wink

I have started to learn English when I was 12. My English was so bad in the beginning. I even cried many times because of it. Language of education was English in my school. I even thought about leaving the school. But in one year time my English got so better. Only reason for that was I have never accepted defeat in my life. Yes I thought about it but never accepted at the end. I recommend you the same

Teşekkürler, Gokuyum. I will try to remember your wise words. And maybe someday I can return to Turkey and show you all that perseverance does indeed pay off!
