I suggest you use the search box (rightmost item on topmost bar).

 

For example, the following has been located through it:

I will tell you how I have understood it, Efi70.

 

In ordinary noun sentences as we know ol- does not show but the ek fiil is used. In the negative değil comes to the sentence.

 

                             Biz zenginiz/zengindik.

                             Biz zengin değiliz/değildik.

 

The verb stem ol- is called for help basically for two reasons:

 

1. When we have some grammatical markers in our hands and those markers cannot be attached to a noun/adjective. Such as ACAK (future), YOR (progressive), MALI (necessity), ABIL (ability). ol- is imported to the sentence just to carry those suffixes.

 

                            Biz zengin ol|acağ|ız.

 

2. If ol- is brought in for other reasons it doesn´t mean ´to be´ any more but ´to become´. Compare: 

 

                           Biz zengindik. ´We were rich.´

                           Biz zengin olduk. ´We became rich.´ 

 

Turks can explain this better, and moreover, give better examples. Anyway good luck with it...

Olmak veya olmamak, bütün mesele bu !

To be or not to be, that is the problem !    {#emotions_dlg.alcoholics}
