Does korkmak have these both meanings:

 

1) being in the state of fears

2) getting into that state?

 

If so, what does korktum actually mean? My suggestions:

 

´I was afraid but I am not any more.´

´I got afraid and if I am still afraid is not the issue now.´

 

Right?

if someone is afraid of something now or a few minutes ago, he says "korktum". It means "i have been frightened."

 

if someone is telling a story about himself happened long time ago, he again says "...korktum". It means "i had been frightened." or "i was afraid of xxx at that time."

It seems that it carries both those meanings then (getting into a state, being in a state). Just like oturmak. Thank you, ikicihan.

 Quoting AblaDoes korkmak have these both meanings:   1) being in the state of fears 2) getting into that state?   If so, what does korktum actually mean? My suggestions:   ´I was afraid but I am not any more.´ ´I got afraid and if I am still afraid is not the issue now.´   Right?   Yes, there is no two different verbs for "korkmak" in Turkish as "to fear"or "to scare", Not a very common form to say " I was afraid(to fear),but not anymore" I would say "I was scared but not anymore" lol right?Korkarim kar yagacak...>I am afraid it will snow.(It is more likely gonna happen,getting into that state,she must be living in MN)Caddede buzlanma korkusundan evden disari cikamadim....Couldn´t get out of home because I was scared of icing on the highway. (In the state,she is scared already,now that is MI lol)Rose

Quoting ikicihan

if someone is afraid of something now or a few minutes ago, he says "korktum". It means "i have been frightened."

 

if someone is telling a story about himself happened long time ago, he again says "...korktum". It means "i had been frightened." or "i was afraid of xxx at that time."

 

 

Isn´t it the same (or very similar) with "özlemek"? I think that "seni özledim" can also mean that person saying this misses someone else now?

 

Edit: Just saw Abla´s post about oturmak. I wonder if past tense can be used for "transition into state" for other verbs as well.
