Quoting Abdelrahman979

 

It doesnt have a clear meaning when you write only "sevdi─čini": 

 

In a sentence it can be more clear:

- I know that you like me. (Beni sevdi─čini biliyorum.)

- Beni sevdi─čini söyle. (Tell me that you like me)

Yes it can, but for an accurate meaning you need to see the full sentence especially the final verb at the end.

sev + di─či + n + i

sev = the base/root part of the verb ´sevmek´ to love

di─či = subordinating suffix (only used in past/present tense) and part of relative or adverbial clauses. It can mean ´that, who, which, what, when´ depending on what follows next, and the final verb.

n = possessive marker, indicating 2nd person singular = you

i = accusative suffix added to show it is tied to the final verb.

To use the previous example

Beni sevdi─čini biliyorum

I know that you love me.

Maybe I´m wrong but I thought the suffix is not di─či but dik + i(n).

you are not wrong..

dik + i =>di─či

(1st. person) sev.di─č.i.m

(2nd. person) sev.di─č.i.n

(3rd. person) sev.di─č.i

 

 

bana sevdi─čini söyle - tell me that you love me 

sevdi─čin.i (-i is accusative)

 

beni sevdi─čini söyledi - s/he told me that s/he loved me

sevdi─či.n.i (-n- is the buffer letter, and -i is accusative)
