Hello turkish world 

how do we make sentences like :

i want you to sing this song

you want her to make the dinner

he wants me to drive his car

She wants us to wait for her

Good question. I found it here: http://www.turkishclass.com/forumTitle_45463

Just add meni

I think the first one is:

Bu şarkıyı söylemeni istiyorum.

So... If I want to say "I want you to Tell the truth"

is it => doğru söyleğinin istiyorum 

is that ok ?

U should understand that you are actually using a noun here: söyleme.

Where in English you say ´I want you to sing´ in Turkish you actually say ´I want your singing´.

Here is some explanation: http://www.turkishlanguage.co.uk/infinitive.htm 

In yapmasını the construction is

-ma = verb to noun (mak - k), -ing

-sı = his

-n = connection ´n´

ı = object condition/accusative

Yapmasını litterally means ´his/her making´ but we translate it as ´him/her to make´.
