If someone does something that is not too smart, can I say:

Düşün! (Think)

 

Kolay gelsin - can I say this as in English "take it easy"? instead of goodbye?

 

 

Can I use mi to emphasize more? Like this:

Daha mı şeker istiyorsun? Would you like more sugar?

Düşün! (Think)

bunu yapmadan önce düşün

or

bunu yapman doğru değil, akıllı ol.

 

Kolay gelsin - can I say this as in English "take it easy"? instead of goodbye?

kolay gelsin dont mean goodbye.

You say that when you see someone work.

Birinin bir iş yaptığını gördüğünüzde ona kolay gelsin diyeceksiniz.

Daha mı şeker istiyorsun? Would you like more sugar?

Daha şeker ister misin/iz?

"Söyle." is another one I was wondering about. When can this be used?

I know literally this means "Tell." But it seems it can be used as:

- Speak to me

- Talk to me

- Go ahead, tell me

Is this correct?

Talk / speak to me = konuş benimle

tell me = söyle bana

 

örnekler (some more examples):

Birşey desene / Birşey söylesene (they are both correct)

Bunu yapmadığını söyledi (bunu yapmadığını dedi/konuştu)

Can konuştu. Bana anne dedi (bana anne söyledi/konuştu)

Sana herşeyi söyledim (sana herşeyi dedim/konuştum)

Adamlar konuşmalarınızı / söyleşmelerinizi duymuşlardır (i think both söyleşmelerinizi and konuşmalarınızı is correct)

    ^ : Your explanations are true.

Bunu yapmadığını dedi .

Sana her şeyi dedim. 

You are right but these 2 are right too. 

And one more depth detail "şey" is written seperated everytime.

But can we not use "Söyle." on it´s own? I´m referring to in a conversation.

I believe I heard this on Kiraz Mevsimi, I could be wrong though? I understood "söyle" was said on it´s own in a conversation, as if to say: Tell me more.

in what episode did you heard that and when? 

 

not sure what you mean, but you can say just söyle without bana, it sound much better

You can say just "Söyle" it means the same thing as "Bana/Bize Söyle" . Just like english we can have some missing words in our daily conversations. 

Another example : "Geldim." = "Ben Geldim."

you can use it, söyle alone is an imperative case "Tell" 

Example:

 1 -- Bir şey söylicem sana

 2 -- Söyle.

 

I will tell you somthing,

Tell, or Speak.
