Hi guys,

 

I know we can use "bir türlü" for negative sentences such as :

"Seni bir türlü unutamam" = "I can´t forget you in no way / at all". 

 

But can we use it for positive meaning to say "somehow", "one way or another" : 

"Bir türlü başaracaksın !" = "You will succeed somehow" or "You will suceed one way or another" ?

 

Thank you in advance,

 

Matt {#emotions_dlg.pray}

Hi Matt,

 

We use "bir türlü" in negative sentences. But I can suggest some other expressions for positive sentences.

 

You can use "bir şekilde" instead of "bir türlü" in your example:

Bir şekilde başaracaksın. (somehow)

Or you can use "öyle veya böyle"

Öyle veya böyle başaracaksın. (one way or another)
