hi

can we say:

bak k覺z覺m覺 ne güzel! to say look how beautiful my daughter is..

 

and why do we say yatmam laz覺m?

I mean yatmak is to sleep so we should say yatm覺yorum laz覺m... or someth覺ng similar but yatmam is like adding the m for possession and that´s done for adject覺ives not for verbs..

please explain!! and thank you very much..

These are ways of expressing necessity.

For both laz覺m (noun) and gerekiyor (verb) the correct forms are like the examples below

Fiil (verb) + ma/me (infinitive) + kii (person)

Benim çal覺mam laz覺m/gerekiyor

Senin çal覺man laz覺m/gerekiyor

Onun çal覺mas覺 laz覺m/gerekiyor

Bizim çal覺mam覺z laz覺m/gerekiyor

Sizin çal覺man覺z laz覺m/gerekiyor

Onlar覺n çal覺malar覺 laz覺m/gerekiyor

The meaning is the same for both laz覺m and gerekiyor, with my teacher suggesting that laz覺m is used more on the streets, and gerekiyor is more academic, used in books and articles.

You are correct in suggesting the ´m´ indicates the person, and 

yatmam = my going to bed, my lying down

yatmam laz覺m = I have to lie down, I have to go to bed.

uyumak = to sleep

ne guzel is how beuatiful i know that now but do we have to say bak k覺z覺m覺? or bak k覺z覺m because k覺z覺m 覺s a d覺rect object correct? so we should add an ´i´ at the end..

Bakmak uses the dative a/e (to or towards) suffix on the direct object

Bana bak! = Look at me! (look towards me)

(Benim) k覺z覺ma bak = Look at my daughter
