Quoting Yarvik364

 

 

 

Lütfen is already "polite", so wouldn´t verin make the request excessively polite? 

 

 

 

Yes. This is also very formal.

Quoting Yarvik364

But would it sound ridiculous to say this to one´s own father, for example?

 

Cheers,

Yes. It would be except you were the son of a king

Quoting Yarvik364

I´m using Rosetta Stone (no grammar explained) and they constantly use phrases such as: Lütfen mutfaktan sekiz tabak getirin. The accompanying pictures suggest that this is common language usage in Turkish (no royalty depicted here .

 

If this getirin adresses one person it is polite. But if it adresses more than one person it is normal. What makes it polite is lütfen.
