Turkish word order -à S O  V

                                 Subject  Object  Verb

 

          SUBJECT

 

Who is the doer of this sentence ? I mean, we need to find a subject first.

 

-         Doer is “people” [insanlar]

-        People who can not sparkle as much as a matchstick.

Kibrit çöpü kadar ışık saçamayan insanlar 

 

Doer [Subject]  --à Kibrit çöpü kadar ışık saçamayan insanlar 

 

VERB

 

What is the verb of the sentence ? [the main verb , since it is a compound sentence]

Normally we look for the main verb in the end of the sentence.

 

………………………………………………….. bayılırlar. [they love a lot]

 

Bayılmak * in this context means “to like/love something a lot “

 

 

 

OBJECT

What is object ? What people who can not sparkle as much as a matchstick love alot ?

 

kendilerini olimpiyat meşalesi gibi göstermeye 

showing themselves as an oliympic torch

 

 

Finally , we have all 3 necessary elements, now put them all together according to English syntax.

SVO

Subject  Verb  Object

 

 

People who can not sparkle as much as a matchstick love to show [ing] themselves as an oliympic torch sebastiyan !!!.

 

"kibrit çöpü kadar işik saçamayan insanlar kendilerini olimpiyat meşalesi gibi göstermeye bayilirlar sebastian!!

 

Note: Sebastiyan may be a nickname of someone..

 

 

So, it kind of means “ Some people who are insufficient/ lack of talent love to magnify themselves by showing themselves to others as such a big person
