Hi all,

Can anyone explain me the difference between the two verbs ayırmak and ayrılmak, if there is any?

Thanks in advance,

Ayırmak is "to seperate"

ayrılmak is "to be seperated" 

I think thats the simplest way to explain it {#emotions_dlg.bigsmile}

You are wrong unfortunately.

Ayırmak = to separate

Ayrılmak = to leave / pull up / breake up

Read this and hopefully you´ll be able to decide for yourself: http://turkish.pgeorgalas.gr/PassiveSetEn.asp

Likes of "ayrılmak" is explained in the second case.


"ayrılmak" is maybe not quite "to be seperated" although SesliSözlük thinks so: http://www.seslisozluk.net/?word=ayr%C4%B1lmak&lang=tr-en

"to be seperated" would be better translated as "ayrı olmak" maybe, whereas "ayrılmak" is "to get seperated"


By the way, it definitely means "to break up" and "to leave" (because you always get seperated with the place you leave) but although I´m a native Turkish speaker, but I don´t see how "ayrılmak" means "to pull up"

I´m not a native of English so I checked a dictionary;


Still no idea.

Yardımcı olayım, hem bu bâb´ta düzeltmiş olurum hatamı.

"pull out" olmalıydı.
