It is "Ona kitab覺m覺 veririm" and in English it is "To him, my book I give."

 

Or you can also say "Kitab覺m覺 ona veririm" and it´s "My book, to him I give."

My thoughts on your questions (but I am not a Turk).

I give him my book

is it valid to express it in Turkish like this?

K覺tapmim vermesen This is wrong, because ...

him = o

to him = ona

book = kitap

my book = kitap + 覺m = kitab覺m (p mutates to b)

when using the verb ´vermek´ (to give) the object (my book) has an accusative suffix added and becomes kitab覺m覺 ver.....

Generally Turks use present continuous tense (iyor) for actions that are happening now, and aorist tense (ir) for actions that occur regularly.

I am giving him my book = Ona kitab覺m覺 veriyorum.

I gave him my book = Ona kitab覺m覺 verdim.

I will give him my book = Ona kitab覺m覺 vereceim.

literally word by word ....

Ona kitab覺mveriyorum. = To him my book I am giving
