S覺la ark覺lar覺n覺 kendince yorulmar

I don´t understand what this means? Even if it should be yorumlar

 

O 2006 Ocak doumlu

Why is the -lu here?

 

Evde 2 tane köpeimiz var

Why is the tane here? Would the meaning be different without it?

yorumla = perform (a song) (verb)

yorumla-r = performs ...

-li suffix means having something:

doum-lu = has the birth

 

Evde 2 tane köpeimiz var

Why is the tane here? Would the meaning be different without it?

no

tane = each one of countable objects

Good question.. and here´s the answer: the meaning wouldn´t be different without it; furthermore, the sentence would be of higher quality.

 

襤ki elma – two apples

dört köpek – four dogs

üç yatak odas覺 - three bedrooms

be yumurta – five eggs

 

etc.. even if, nowadays, nobody cares why the hell this "tane" is often there following a numeral adjective, you´d better not use it like in the examples above..

 

What is more strange, you may hear and see such sentences as

 

üç tane polis

be tane öretmen

iki tane asker

dört tane örenci

 

using "tane" for people is really weird, and you should absolutely avoid using it for people..

 

What does "tane" mean?

 

üzüm salk覺m覺 – bunch of grapes

üzüm tanesi – every single grape in the bunch

 

tane tane – one by one

tane tane konu - speak slowly/ make your speech understood

 

taneyle – by the piece

elmalar覺 taneyle satt覺 - s/he sold the apples by the piece

 

tanesi kaçayd覺? - what was the price of each one?

 

Aaçtan biraz elma toplad覺m - I picked some apples from the tree

kaç elma toplad覺n? - how many apples did you pick?

kaç tane toplad覺n? - how many of it did you pick?

 

If you say "kaç tane elma toplad覺n" this means "how many of apples did you pick"... long and a bit weird.. isn´t it?
