hi

*  "ö─črenmeye ba┼člayal─▒ 3 ay oldu"

1-why do we say örenmeye? it means to learn? so we delete the k and add e or ye? depending on the last letter if it´s a vowel r a consonant?

2-why do we say ba┼člayal─▒ and not ba┼člad─▒ as ba┼člad─▒ is the past tense...

 

* what does uyudu─čunu mean? uyumak means to sleep uyudu means slept but uyudu─čunu??? and why did we add these suffixes?

* öyle means like that? and ┼čöyle?

* "kitap ihtiyac─▒m" I know that ihtiyac─▒m means I need but what is it? I mean I can´t find wether this word is a verb or...?

 

thank you very much!!

Better to look at it: ören + me + ye

örenme would be like ´learning´ i.e. a gerund. In English, you use the same word in these totally different forms:

- I started ´learning´ (gerund -me ending)

- I am ´learning´ (present continous tense)

In Turkish these are formed differently

 

This link talks about -me http://www.turkishclass.com/turkish_lesson_319

 

The (y)e is dative. Like when you go to somewhere. I´m not sure why it´s used with ba┼člamak, you just need to remember it.

2-why do we say ba┼člayal─▒ and not ba┼člad─▒ as ba┼člad─▒ is the past tense...

 

The (y)al─▒/eli suffix means ´since´. There are a number of ways of saying ´since´ and this way is used less than the others. 

Ö─črenmeye ba┼člayal─▒ 3 ay oldu.

It has been 3 months since the learning started.

Ders ba┼člayal─▒ yar─▒m saat oldu.

It has been half an hour since the lesson started.

See below for Tunci´s excellent explanation of how the suffix can be used.

Quote:Tunci

 -EL─░


This form is very similar to - den beri.

To specify a period of time beginning with some action in the past and continuing up to the present, we place -eli after the verb stem indicating that action.

- Buraya geleli hiç nezle olmad─▒m. ---> I haven´t had a cold since I came here.

- Evi satal─▒ üç defa apartman de─či┼čtirdim. ----> Since I sold the house I have changed apartments three times.

The -eli suffix can only be used with a verb stem. This is one of the points in which it differs from the -den beri form.

The other important difference is that the -eli form is used when the whole period is measured and not the activity during that period.

- Ali i┼čini b─▒rakal─▒ üç ay oluyor. ---> It is 3 months now since Ali quit his job.

-eli marks the begining of a period. It does not indicate person or take personal endings if the subject of the verb with -eli is other than the subject of the main clause, it should be indicated by the appropriate noun or pronoun.

-Sen gideli hiç bir ┼čeyde zevk kalmad─▒. ---> Since you´ve gone there is no joy left in anything.

* A second characteristic of this form is that it can be used with a negative verb.

- Ondan mektup almayal─▒ kaç ay oluyor ? ---> How long [How many months] it has been since you last heard from him ?

* what does uyudu─čunu mean? uyumak means to sleep uyudu means slept but uyudu─čunu??? and why did we add these suffixes?

 

If you ask for a meaning, it always helps when you show the full sentence where the word was used.

This word is part of a relative clause, that will describe a noun that is the object of a sentence. 

You know uyumak means to sleep. The next part ´di─či/du─ču´ tells us that it is either present or past tense

uyudu─ču insanlar = the people who were sleeping, the people who slept

as opposed to the future tense (y)ece─či / (y)aca─č─▒

uyuyaca─č─▒ insanlar = the people who will sleep.

We looked after the people who slept.

Uyudu─ču insanlara bakt─▒k.

You can read more by clicking here, where it is described as object participles

I would need to see the whole sentence, and then I might be able to explain more.

* öyle means like that? and ┼čöyle?

 

I´m not sure if you´re aware of

bu, ┼ču and o (this, that, that further away)

burada, ┼čurada and orada (here, there and there further away)

bunlar, ┼čunlar, onlar (these, those, them/they)

and hopefully you can see a pattern emerging

böyle, ┼čöyle and öyle 

They are forms of adverbials/determiners and function as manner adverbials (in this/that way, like this/that) They differ in the same way as bu/┼ču/o

Öyle has to be used when reference is being made to a manner of doing something, or to a kind of category, that belongs to a context away from the speech situation.

Uzmanlar öyle söylüyorlar.

That´s what the experts say. (The experts say it in that way)

Acaba sizde ┼čöyle bir ┼čey var m─▒?

I wonder whether you have anything like this? (Whilst showing the item to the person you are asking)

Ananas─▒ böyle kesmemen gerekiyordu.

You shouldn´t have cut the pineapple like this.

You also have the expression ┼čöyle böyle meaning so so, fair

Nas─▒ls─▒n─▒z? How are you?

┼×öyle böyle. So so (not great, fair, nothing special)

* "kitap ihtiyac─▒m" I know that ihtiyac─▒m means I need but what is it? I mean I can´t find wether this word is a verb or...?

ihtiyaç is a noun, and like other nouns it can take a suffix to indicate possession

kedim = my cat

ihtiyac─▒m = my need

It can also be combined to make a verb

ihtiyaç olmak = to need, to be in need of, to be necessary

ihtiyaç duymak = to feel a/the need (for)

Certain verbs require -ya/ye. Explaining it would be like asking: 

explain why do you say ´I started to run´ but you can´t say ´I finished to run´?

 

A few more examples:

Start writing. Yazmaya ba┼člay─▒n.

Let´s go swimming. Hadi yüzmeye gidelim.
