Quoting JNQ

 

I just didn´t know if all verbs could be used as nouns or adjectives.

 

I guess Turkish has more possibilities to use verbs as adjectives and nouns.

 

 

 

Your guess is absolutely right. We do our best, try any possible way to make nouns from verbs, or else how we could explain why we have 42 suffixes waiting quietly in the bush like wild cats crouching down and ready to attack at verbs any moments. If ever a verb is enfected by any of these suffixes, this doesn´t only mean that it´s a noun from then on, but that, depending on by which suffix it´s infected, it has a potential of being adjective.. a kind of chain reaction.

It´s such a pity I can only like a message 1 time. You truly nailed the feeling that I have trying to speak Turkish: as if I´m walking through a dark forest with behind each tree a hungry animal waiting to jump me or someone trying to lift my leg. But then what´s the fun in a language with no suffixes to conquer?
