Really cool sentences, thank you impulse. Like a game with verb queues and tenses. A good example of how lexical meanings are often conveyed with grammatical means in Turkish.

 

I remember one more structure for ´pretend´:

 

İşveren isteklerimi duymazlıktan geliyor. ´The employer pretends not to have heard my wishes.´

 

You can also see it as duymazdan gelmek.

 

I have a feeling the structure works with a limited set of verbs, i.e. duymak and görmek. Correct me if I am wrong.
