Quoting Yarvik364

 

Thank you.

 

By the way:

That refers to a thing, who refers to a person. The man who is ... The man whom I saw ... The present that I bought ... One is at school.

 

Thank you for correcting my English(I have a little problem with it).. But I hope that you understood a point.

Because there is no such structure in English local adverbial + -ki usually translates as a relative clause: ´The monkey which is in the zoo´.

Is this possible: Hayvanat bahçesindeki maymunuku gördüm?!

Cheers,

Quoting Yarvik364

 

 

Is this a complicated way of asking me to translate this sentence? In English we say: what do you mean by that? Or: what do you intend to express?

 

Your sentence ; "  Bana öyle geliyor ki bizi anlıyoruz. " doesn´t make sense in Turkish. May be that´s why she asked you to explain what do you mean by that.

Hayvanat bahçesindeki maymunu gördüm=I saw the monkey which is in the zoo.

 --> In English, one would simply write: I saw the monkey in the zoo. A relative clause would be superfluous in this case because it wouldn´t really provide for any additional information.

Hayvanat bahçesinde maymun gördüm=I saw (a) monkey in the zoo.

Yes I realize it, thank you Yarvik364. I used the superfluous structure here so that you could see the difference between the sentences without me going too deep into grammatical terms.

 

Maybe we could say if you can (in theory) bring it back into a relative clause it probably takes -ki. I sometimes use this method when I try to understand what a sentence consists of.
