´dükkana giderse bir litre kola als覺n´

I know that almak means to buy and here it means if he goes to the market tell him to buy a l覺tre of cola...

but why did we say als覺n? 襤 mean als覺n 覺s for ´you´ and not ´him´ and where is the translation of ask him...

we have written -> order form of the verb + ´you´ ending..

so how we say tell them to come early?

Yes, it´s tricky. There are places you use -sin for the second person

gel-ir-sin = you come

 

But not in this case. Pay attention it´s right after the verb stem

gel-sin = let him come, tell him to come, I demand/order him to come

For the second person it would just be a bare verb stem (like in English)

gel = come

"als覺n" in you first sentence means ´let him buy´, it is a third person (he/she/it) imperative (giving instruction) suffix.

Your ´Teach yourself Turkish´ book has explanations if you look up

-sin in the rear index (it is on page 105 in my copy)

This form is also used in the very common Turkish expressions

Geçmi olsun - May it pass (said to people who are sick, or have problems)

Kolay gelsin - May it come easy (said to people who are doing work)

To tell someone to come

Gel! (You) come!

Gelsin! (her/him) = let him/her/it come!

Geliniz! (plural you-more polite,formal)

Gelsinler! (they) = let them come!
