Selam, 


 


Could you please help me with the following questions.  


 


1-  ´Suya dalıp görünmez oluyor´


 


What is the meaning of that sentence ?


 


2- ´Annemin beni teskin etmesinden sonra ancak uyuyabildim´


 


Does ANCAK mean BARELY in that context ?


 


3- ´Gözümü açtığımda üzerime bir taşın geliyor olduğunu gördüm´


 


This is the first time i have come across such a pattern, a verb followed by olduğnu, 


does this mean ´When i opened my eyes i saw a stone coming toward me´ ?


 


4- ´Annemin bazı masallarında anlatığı deprem olmuştu´


 


Does that mean, ´The earthquick, that my mom had mentioned in some of her stories, happened´


 


5- ´Sabahda kalmadan ben de ölüp gidecekmiş gibiydım´


What is the meaning of the sentence ?


 


6- ´Bir taraftan bende annem ve babam gibi şehit olsaydım´


what does ´bir taraftan´ mean. And does ´olsaydım´ mean if only ?


 


7-´beni her sabah güzel sözlerle kahvaltıya kaldıran babamın sesi gibiydi´


That didn´t make sense to me, what does ´kaldıran´ mean in this context ´




8- ´ öğrenene kadar o defteri benim için sakladığını söyledi´


Till you are able to read ?




9- ´ Ben hiç bir şey göremiyordum eski evimizin olduğu yerde´ 


What´s the meaning of the sentence ?


 


 


Thank you for your time.

Quoting Moamen


I may have an idea for some of them at least.

 

1-  ´Suya dalıp görünmez oluyor´

 

What is the meaning of that sentence ? He/she/it sinks into water and disappears from sight.

 

2- ´Annemin beni teskin etmesinden sonra ancak uyuyabildim´

 

Does ANCAK mean BARELY in that context ? I only could sleep after.../I could not sleep until...

 

3- ´Gözümü açtığımda üzerime bir taşın geliyor olduğunu gördüm´

 

This is the first time i have come across such a pattern, a verb followed by olduğnu, 

does this mean ´When i opened my eyes i saw a stone (in the process of) coming toward me´ ? Yes.

 

4- ´Annemin bazı masallarında anlatığı deprem olmuştu´

 

Does that mean, ´The earthquick, that my mom had mentioned in some of her stories, happened´Yes.

 

5- ´Sabahda kalmadan ben de ölüp gidecekmiş gibiydım´ 

What is the meaning of the sentence ? This one I am really not sure about. Maybe ´I felt like there was no morning left (for me) and I would also die and go.´  -  A native will help you. 

 

6- ´Bir taraftan bende annem ve babam gibi şehit olsaydım´ 

what does ´bir taraftan´ mean. ´in a way´ And does ´olsaydım´ mean if only ? It could mean ´if only´ but it depends on how the sentence continues (if it continues). şehit olsaydım ´I wish I would die a martyr´ OR ´if I died/had died a martyr...´.

 

7-´beni her sabah güzel sözlerle kahvaltıya kaldıran babamın sesi gibiydi´ 

That didn´t make sense to me, what does ´kaldıran´ mean in this context ´ It was like the voice of my father who every morning woke me up for breakfast with beautiful words.


8- ´ öğrenene kadar o defteri benim için sakladığını söyledi´ 

Till you are able to read ? Present participle + DAT ´until´ > until (someone, maybe the story teller, learns)


9- ´ Ben hiç bir şey göremiyordum eski evimizin olduğu yerde´ 

What´s the meaning of the sentence ? I could not see a thing in the place where our old house used to be.

That should be without "d", --->  Sabaha  kalmadan ---> Before the morning comes

I was / felt like I was going to die [and go] before the morning comes.
