-Acağı yerde    [ instead of ]

Verb stem + acağı + personal ending +   yerde [eceği yerde ]

 

Gerund of  replacing actions.


* This form tells us the unwanted second action is replaced with       the desired first action.

Two actions that are oppossing to eachother , expressing a displeasure for the wrong preference [choise].

* This form is used with only actions.

 


- Bana teşekkür edeceği yerde hakaret ediyor.

   Instead of thanking me , she is insulting me.

 

   to thank  -  to insult    have  opposite concepts.

 

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

 Onunla konuşacağın yerde  kavga  ediyorsun.

 Instead of talking to him, you are fighting with him.

 

  to talk  -  to fight

 

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

 

Evde oturup ders çalışacağın yerde geziyorsun.

Instead of staying  home and studying, you are hanging out.

 

to stay home and  study -  to  hang out
