Hello,

What is differences between

bizim evin yolunu unuttun and bizim evimizin yolunu unuttun

I believe in English this is: you forgot the way to our home.

I think this is not grammatically correct: bizim evin yolunu unuttun

this is correct: bizim evimizin yolunu unuttun

Hopefully someone with stronger Turkish can verify this...

Quoting pekka

Hello,

What is differences between

bizim evin yolunu unuttun and bizim evimizin yolunu unuttun

 

Hello pekka,

 

The difference is not the meaning but the way of saying:

Bizim evin yolu - Our home´s road

(Bizim) Evimizin yolu - Our home´s road

 

Writing "Bizim" in the second sentence is optional because you add necessary pronouns after "ev". But in the first sentence you need to specify it because there is no suffixes after "ev".

Why is it not ´evimize yolu´? The road to our house?

Sorry, I thought you have to put the possessive ending (evimiz). If anyone can explain more or give me a link to an explanation.

No, the mandatory one is suffix, not the word form at the beginning.

Did you check this lesson for possessive pronouns?

Thankyou. Yes, I´ve seen that one. I was wondering how can the imiz be missing in the first one.

It may be ungrammatical in essence.However,funnily,we tend to drop the suffix after using a personal pronoun more often than not, if not always.

 

Senin ev nerede?

Benim oğlan/kız okula başladı. (But never senin-benim anne, baba or any other elders. Always annem, babam, deden, etc.)

Bizim araba eskidi.

Senin meslek neydi?

(Senin) yaş kaç?

 

etc.
