I have great difficulty in understanding how to make compound adjectives using ... -le, -tir, -il etc. forexample GERÇEK-LE-TIR-襤L-M襤 .... Please can a knowlegable person point me in the right direction or provide guidance.  I am a native speaker of English ... but not familiar with English grammar at all!!

-le makes verbs from nouns. It means become.

-tir forms verbs from verbs in the sense of causative.

-il forms passive verbs.

 

You may or may not use these suffixes before  -mi, which makes adjectives from verbs.

Look at these examples:

 

iyi pimi (< pi) bir pirzola 

taze s覺k覺lm覺 (< s覺k) portakal suyu

dondurulmu (< don) yiyecekler

kefedilmemi (< kefet) topraklar 

 

Look also at this idiom:

 

Ölmü eek kurttan korkmaz.

Thank you qdemir ... my problem is when these modifiers come in the same noun one after the other ... as in ´Gerçekletirilmis´!!! ... just an example!  And to add to difficulty ... sometimes it involves deploying ´Double Negatives´.  Things appear simple for a ´Native´ speaker of Turkish ... but a ´Foreign´ learner and a prize idiot like me needs a whole chapter that explains and provides exempler sentences.  Just ennunciation of dry rules leave a void.  Is there a ´Link´ or a source that I might access.  But thank you explaining at least one thing viz.,You may or may not use these suffixes before  -mi, which makes adjectives from verbs. This has been somewhat helpful. Thanks.
