In Turkish, if you want to say "OK?" do you say "Tamam mı?" or just "Tamam?"

I am watching "Kara Para Aşk" and I think I can hear people saying it both ways, or is it just my imagination?

Teşekkürler!

Normally we say "tamam mi?" but as you told you can also say "tamam".  it is up to your body language and tone of voice as you may guess. Generally someone using "tamam" as question word make a little instant head down, eye brows up action.

Just like you are trying to do now

It´s confusing because ´tamam´ actually means ´complete´. See this post:

I guess it depends on the context, but you can NOT say ´Her şey tamam mı?´ as a translation of ´Is everything OK?´.

"Tamam?" wouldn´t be a complete sentence but in conversation it´s OK. Would be like someone saying "you sure?" instead of "Are you sure?"

Thank you, everyone! And you are correct, ahmet a1b2, I was trying to "make a little instant head down, eye brows up action." How did you know?! Wink

And JNQ, on your question about "Her şey tamam mı?": I have learned the phrase "Herşey yolunda mı?" for "Is everything ok?" In other words, "Is everything on the road?" or, as we might say in English, "Is everything on track?" I first learned this phrase, or rather its opposite, from the Sıla song "Herşey Yolunda."

Do you know this one, Denizli? It´s very nice. {#emotions_dlg.yes}

A new question along the same lines: I am still watching "Kara Para Aşk" and tonight I thought I heard someone say "Biliyorsun" but as a question, with a lift in his voice. Is that possible? Or is he saying "Biliyor musun?" so quickly that I am mishearing. ... Teşekkürler!

Here is the link to where I am watching on YouTube: 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRZskRg2rPQ

It is Episode 13 in the first season. And the dialogue I´m referring to starts at about 1:46 on the timer. It is in a scene outside an airport terminal. A bad guy is giving instructions to a young woman.

Çok teşekkürler!

he said biliyorsun, and it was not a question.

 

Bad guy: Metin abin selam söyledi. Valizanız buymuş. Emanete bakmak yasak, biliyorsun.

Girl: Biliyorum.
