Quoting pekka

hello,
I really need this book

Türkçe´de Dolayl覺 Anlat覺m ve Kimi Yan Cümleler - Dilmer Yay覺nlar覺 & Dilmer Publications

whoever has it or can buy it for me and send me a pdf copy of it I can pay him by itunes gift card because I don´t have credit card

thanks in advance

 

 

I have this book, but the author has requested it not to be copied (kopya edilmez) and I respect his wishes.

It is written completely in Turkish, so you will probably need help from Turkish friends or teachers to fully understand. 

The first half of this book covers converting direct speech (demek) to indirect speech (söylemek), and lots of similar examples can be found on this site.

Abla´s quick guide

Henry´s examples of reported speech

The final part covers subordinate sentences, which are also covered on this site.

Hopefully you will find someone who can buy this book for you in Istanbul.

Maybe if you send the Dilmer school an email, they might be able to find some other way of payment that does not involve a credit card.

I notice you can download 5 sample pages from the book in the link you posted.

If you complete their sample questions I can check them with my book´s answer pages if that helps you.

To help you, I will add my understanding of how indirect reported speech works, starting with reporting ´imperative´ (instructions or commands given to a person)

Dolayl覺 Anlat覺m "Emir Kipi 襤çin" (reported speech for imperative)

The formula is 

fiil + me/ma + iyilik + akuzat覺f   söylemek

verb + me/ma + personal suffix + accusative suffix   söylemek

Note that the subject of the quoted speech always takes genitive suffix.

Benim yap ma m 覺 söylemek

Senin yap ma n 覺 söylemek

Onun yap ma s覺 n 覺 söylemek

Bizim yap ma m覺z 覺 söylemek

Sizin yap ma n覺z 覺 söylemek

Onlar覺n yap ma lar覺 n 覺 söylemek

For negative imperative an extra ma/me is added to the formula

Benim yap ma ma m 覺 söylemek

I hope that makes sense to you.

Pekka bana "Bula覺klar覺 çabuk y覺ka" dedi.

Pekka said "Clean the dishes quickly" to me.

In reported speech this becomes

Pekka, bana bula覺klar覺 çabuk y覺kamam覺 söyledi.

Y覺ka + ma + m + 覺

Pekka told me to clean the dishes quickly.

The sample page 15 from the book which you can download, has 15 questions.

If you do these questions and add your answers, I can check them for you.

Here is the first question to get you started ...

Question 1 Convert this sentence to indirect reported speech.

Ahmet, bana ´Mehmet sana yard覺m etsin´ dedi.

Answer 1

Ahmet, bana Mehmet´in bana yard覺m etmesini söyledi.

Once you have answered these I can add 2 more types of indirect reported speech.
