Tan覺mak: First dialog and introducing each other.(Ali ile okulda tan覺t覺m)

Bulumak: Planned meetings.(Dün akam kafede bulutuk)

Görümek:

1- Planned meetings.(Dün akam kafede görütük)

2- Phone calls.(Onunla telefonda görütük)

3- Discussing.(Sevgilimle evlenme konusunu görütük)

my thoughts as a learner .....

They are all reciprocal/co-operative verbs that can be used to mean ´to meet each other´. The slight differences can become clearer if you look at the root verbs.

Görmek = to see

Görümek = to see each other, to meet.

Ahmet ile görüeceim. I´ll meet with Ahmet

(Ahmet and I will see each other)

Different versions are often used in departure expressions

for example ´see you later´ = görüürüz (we will see each other)

and görümek üzere 

Tan覺mak = to recognize

Tan覺mak = to recognize each other, to meet for the first time

Used when you are about to meet someone or a group/family for the first time, or after meeting them. 

Tan覺t覺覺m覺za memnun oldum = nice to meet you

Bulmak = to find

Bulumak = to find each other, to meet (but you have met before this), and for arranged meetings

Seninle rüyalar覺mda buluaca覺m = I´ll meet you in my dreams.

I hope this helps Smile

..... and there is also kar覺lamak

kar覺 = opposite, facing

kar覺lamak = to welcome, to react to

kar覺lamak = to meet, to run in to, to face each other, to oppose (for sports teams to play each other)

2- Phone calls.(Onunla telefonda görütük)

 

 

 

This should be further clarified. Usually we used to talk on the phone:

Onunle telefonda konutuk = we talked to him/her on the phone

 

But further advances in technology now makes it possible to make a video phone call:

Onunla telefonda görütük = We made a video phone call with him/her

"Telefonda/Telefonla görümek" is quite common usage form.

 

Its not about especially face-to-face or video phone call, we can also use this form for voice phone calls.

 

Telefonda konutuk.

Telefonda görütük.

 

Both are have same meanings.

 

We can prefer "görümek" verb to "konumak" verb for every kind of phone call.

Well, if that´s what you think I would say it´s improper Turkish you´re using. It´s meaningless, illogical.

I´m a native Turkish speaker and "telefon görümesi" is ingrained and correct usage form in Turkish language. I´m pretty sure.

 

You can´t evaluate phrases only in "logical" case in languages. Some phrases may be ingrained and acceptable.

görümek = to see each other

konumak = to talk to one en another

 

So how do you see the other party when you are talking on the phone? I´m curious. Do you close your eyes and imagine his/her face?

 

And I´m also native speaker and it´s bad Turkish to me. Does not make sense to me. There are bad usages like that. You don´t have to speak like that. You can try to speak better Turkish. Not a problem for me if you don´t. It´s your problem.
