Hi!

I´m just a beginner, so my question may sound rediculous to you.

 

In my textbook, I found a sentence like, "Siz türk´ sünüz".

 

I think it should be "Siz türkler´ siniz". , because "Siz" means "you guys", so "türk" should be in plural form.

 

Please correct me.

 

Thank you in advance.

No.

 

We are turkish=Biz Türk´üz.

You are turkish=Siz Türk´sünüz./Sen Türk´sün.

"Siz Türk´sünüz." is correct but;

I think "Siz Türkler´siniz." True too. If I say like this, it means "You are THE Turks.". So, It refer a group.

You are right, but as you said that their meanings are not the same. 

 

In a conversation, it sounds very strange to say that ´´ Siz Türklersiniz.´´ 

When you meet someone and ask them their nationality and understand that they are turkish, you must say that ´´Siz Türk´sünüz.´´ instead of ´´Siz Türklersiniz.´´

Quoting Erbab

You are right, but as you said that their meanings are not the same.

If there is 3 Turks in front of you and you say: ´Siz Turkler siniz´,

will that still sound strange? Turklersniniz is one word - right?

Yes, it will still sound strange. And yes, Türklersiniz is one word.
