I aplogize if this has been asked before.  I searched the website, but didn´t find the answer.  What is the difference between sever and seviyor?

For example, are both correct?  Do they mean the same thing?

Müzik sever misiniz?

Müzik seviyor misiniz?

Müzik sever misiniz?

Müzik seviyor misiniz   seviyor musunuz? (study wovel harmony)

 

 

They are same.

Like other commentators have said they are the same in meaning but

different in their conjugated form. Sev.er appears in its «aorist form»

(this is what Turks call «geniş zaman» (the broad tense)). «Aorist form»

denotes «continuing activity».

In English-Turkish dictionary, stems of the verbs are usually given with their

aorist form appearing in brackets.

Stems ending with a vowel take an -r 

(example: benze- to resemble; benzer: he resembles).

Stems ending with a consonant take an e/a before the -r 

(example: bin- to mount; biner: he mounts).

There are however 13 exceptions which are monosyllabic stems which take

either i/ü/ı/u before the -r (in matter of fact all those exceptions except for one

take in their aorist form an -l instead of an -r).

Polysyllabic stems also take either  i/ü/ı/u before the -r.  

 

Sev.iyor is used in the «present continuous» tense.

 

As per to your question, which one should you use?

Aorist form may be used for requests (and since there haven´t been

any objections from any Turkish native speaker commentator to your

question, we are to deduce that they may be used interchangeably in spoken Turkish).

However, I would like to suggest a third form which I got from my study

books:

«Ne (tür/çeşit) musiki seversiniz?» 

 Tür/çeşit may be used interchangeably since they both mean (kind) and the use of either is optional. The sentence translates as follows: «What (kind) of music do you like?».

I hope that this was helpful (P.S. The grammatical explanation is based on

Turkish Grammar by G. L. Lewis)

I am very sorry for the repetitive posting in this thread. I am not sure how it happened, because each time I posted, I couldn´t see my post, so I reposted it. I thought that there was a technical problem with the forum preventing posts from being posted, even now I couldn´t delete the previous posts and keep just one. I am extremely sorry for the incovenience!

...continuous in the present tense (this is where it comes very close to IYOR I suppose), habitual in the past tense, never progressive or perfected action.
