If anyone gets the chance...

What does this mean:

Rize anlatilmaz, yaşanir.


For ´next summer´ can I say: sonraki yaz?


Is this correct:

I will tell Nafis what you told me.

Ne söylediğini Nafis´e söyleceğim.

Anlatılmaz yaşanır= can´t be described, but only experienced.


Rize anlatılmaz yaşanır= Rize can´t be described but only experienced. (meaning you should live there to understand its beauty or whatever)


next summer= önümüzdeki yaz/gelecek yaz


I will tell Nafis what you told me= Bana söylediğini (dediğini) Nafis´e söyleyeceğim.

Gugukkusu, thanks!


Sounds like sonraki yaz would be wrong or just unusual?


What is the difference between sonraki and gelecek?

It seems to me that sonraki rather means something in the region of ´(the) later´.

Also I wonder if you could use gelen yaz instead of gelecek yaz, and what would be the difference?

Actually we hardly say "gelen something", or never. "Gelecek yaz" is more natural and correct.

Also, if you want to say "next week", we can select either " hafta-y-a" or "gelecek hafta" or "önümüzdeki hafta". Frankly the difference seems vague to me but I tend to chose one over the other insome instances. Below are examples:

Hoca haftaya ödev verdi. (The professor has given a HW due the next week.)

Haftaya ödevi teslim edeceğiz. (We will submit the HW next week.)

Gelecek hafta yeni dönem başlıyor. (Next week the new term begins.)

Önümüzdeki yaz Almanya´ya gidiyorum. (Next summer I go to Germany.)

    Remember; the examples I listed above are very advanced (to me). Therefore, a       Turkish lerner can say either "gelecek hafta" or "haftaya" or "önümüzdeki hafta",         but never "gelen hafta".

And I agree with JNQ that sonraki inludes the meaning of later:

Ödevi şimdi mi vereceğiz?_Hayır sonraki hafta.

(Are we supposed to hand the HW in now?_ No, next week.[one week later])


I hope this helps

Quoting mehmezelim

Thanks M. But then how about last week, last year: geçen sene/hafta? I see that a lot and I automatically applied it to gelmek (I´m lazy). But is there a better way to say ´last week´?
