Hi guys,

 

I´m learning Turkish and would really appreciate some help with the word "diye". I think I understand it when it is used in most contexts but I have encountered a use recently which has really thrown me.

 

Bayan rahats覺z olmas覺n diye bo koltua oturmayan adam. 

 

Can anyone explain what function the word diye is serving here?

 

Thank-you in advance.

The man who doesnt sit in empty seat not to make the woman uncomfortable.

Can anyone explain what function the word diye is serving here?

 

Thank-you in advance.

"diye" has this funny use. You use the word "like" similarly in English.

 

He doesn´t sit in the chair, (because he´s) like "let not a woman be uncomfortable".

Thanks

 

So in turkish its also the other way around?? :

Bayan rahats覺z olmas覺n diye bo koltua oturmayan adam. 

 

English:

He doesn´t sit in the chair, (because he´s) like "let not a woman be uncomfortable". 

 

So literally you are saying:

Woman not uncomfortable like Empy chair he doesnt sit the man
