Hi hogeldin,

I´ll give you an example for Yapt覺ysa in a sentence:

If he has done it then it´s all good.

Yapt覺sa, her ey ho

 

Yapsayd覺,

Well if he had done it on time, we wouldn´t have been so late to submitt our project, wouldn´t we.

 

has and had seem to be the keywords here between the two. I can give you more sentences if you want to really let it sink in, and cement it.

 

Saol

My translations implies:

that something hasn´t been done

whislt the other implies:

one is not quite certain yet if it has or hasn´t been done. Not sure 100% yet. It´s not definitine yet. Almost like an assumption, taking for granted it´s been done.

Interesting question. I can´t think of another case where you can change the order of the suffixes. Accoring to this http://www.turkishlanguage.co.uk/conditional.htm di + se is Past Reality Conditional, se + di is Past Unreality Conditional.

 

English example Past Reality Conditional - If you parked there, you get a ticket. 

 

 

English example Past Unreality Conditional - If you had parked there, you would have gotten a ticket.

Quoting denizli

 

 

di + se is Past Reality Conditional, se + di is Past Unreality Conditional.

How would I say in Turkish:

se and sa are conditional suffix´s in Turkish?

You mean you can´t order of suffix´s for these two words: Yapsayd覺 and Yapt覺ysa?
