\"örneğin\" can it be broken down or is it one word?

Quoting Abdelrahman979

Thanks in Advance for your help!!!!!!

 

Its root word is örnek which means example.

örnek > örneğin

This word has been formed with an old instrumental suffix -In, thus carrying the meaning "with, by". In modern Turkish this suffix is no longer used but it IS found in some words and suffixes (such as the gerund mAksIzIn).

"Örneğin" means "for example", however, its literal translation would be "with example, by example".

Some other words that use the old instrumental suffix -In in modern Turkish are:

yazın - in the summer

kışın - in the winter

öğleyin - at noon

gündüzün - by day

ilkin - firstly, in the first place, at first

 

I hope this helps!
