Quoting KediNero

What is difference between yaptıydım and yapmıştım?






This form is very rarely used in daily language [verbal language] which is very close to -mIştI form.

Verb stem + dI + y + dı + Personal suffix

Yap         + tı   + y + dı    +   m


Bu sabah kahvaltı yaptıydım.

I had had my breakfast this morning.


Geçen yaz İngilizce kursuna gittiydi.

He/She had gone to English course last summer.



Dün ona telefon ettiydik.

We had phoned him yesterday.

simple past tense (-di) + past of additional verb (idi)

-miş + past of additional verb (idi)


-diydi is not used very much in official texts, almost never. But both are often used in spoken.
