It is difficult to see the difference between daha and hala.

Quoting Abla

It is difficult to see the difference between daha and hala.

 

Say you have dentist appoinment scheduled for 3:00PM. You arrive at his office at 2:40PM.

Your anxious mother at home can call you at any time and ask "Has the dentist come ?"

- If she calls at 2:45PM and the dentist has not yet appeared, your reply will be "daha gelmedi", implying there is still time.

- If she calls at 3:15PM and the dentist has not yet appeared, your reply will be "hala gelmedi", implying it is already past the appointment time.

AlphaF you are really good at this. It is often the non-linguistic context that makes the difference.

 

In this example it seems like daha expresses a positive expectation while hala is something like "it has been too long".

 

What about the mother, how would her question look like at 2.45 and 3.15?

 

                              Doktor daha/hala gelmedi mi?

 

Does it show in her question whether she expects a yes or a no for the answer?

If she is sharp, 2:45 question will have "daha" and 3:15 will have "hala"....
