"Kaçtır "  is a question word  that is rarely used which may mean  ---> how many times, its been long time since....

Kaçtır seni uyardım ! Ama aynı şeyleri yapmaya devam ediyorsun !

How many times I warned you ! But you still doing the same things !

*******************************

Kaçtır  görüşemiyoruz. ---> We haven´t seen eachother  for long time. [ I don´t know how long that we haven´t seen eachother  ]

Is usage of this word limited to "rhetorical questions", or can it be used also when we are really asking how many times something occured/will occur etc. ? Like in:

 

How many times have you seen this movie?

Bu filmi kaç kere izledin?

Kaçtır bu filmi izledin? <- Is this correct usage?

Lexically question but semantically it is not question for this special usage.

I mean, in this usage, it is expressing a statement.

 

" Kaçtır görüşemiyoruz ! nerelerdesin ?

" We haven´t seen eachother for quite a while ! Where have you been ?

---------------------------------

Kaçtır bu filmi izliyorsun ama hala filmin verdiği mesajı çözemedin.

You have been watching this movie for how many times [ many times] but you still didn´t get its message.
