Hello!

What are the differences, if any, between these verbs:

izlemek,seyretmek, görmek, bakmak?

 

Are any of them interchangeable?

Thank you.

Hello!

izlemek,seyretmek, görmek, bakmak?

İzlemek and seyretmek mean to watch. İzlemek is a Turkish verb, seyretmek is a combination of Arabic(seyr) and Turkish(etmek) words. Görmek means to see, bakmak means to look at.

 

Are any of them interchangeable?

Thank you.

İzlemek and seyretmek can be interchangeable when they mean "to watch ".

 

*  However, "izlemek" can mean as " to follow something or someone [to come/go after someone ".


For instance, when you want someone come after you , you can say  "Beni izle " [follow me - come after me ]

 

* If someone is secretly following another one ;

 Adam yol boyunca kadını izledi.  [ The man followed  the woman all along the road. ]

 

 

* Another difference between them is  "izlemek" is turkish origin word whereas "seyretmek " is formed of arabic origin word  [seyir] + turkish auxilary verb [etmek]

seyir + etmek  ---> seyretmek

 

* "izlemek" can be used as  " to trace or to monitor something, or someone "

O şirketin tüm faaliyetlerini izlemenizi istiyorum.

I want you to monitor all activities of that company.

 

* "Seyretmek" can be used as  " to sail "

Gemi akdenizde seyrediyordu. [ The ship was sailing in mediterranian sea ]

 

"Seyretmek" can also be used to express the progress, development of an ilness.

 

Bu hastalık yetişkinlerde daha hafif seyreder. 

Adults have this ilness milder.

 

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

Görmek  - to see something or someone

Bakmak  - to look at something or someone
