Vowel harmony in noun sentences
Answer questions 1 - 13 based on the following text:

In Turkish noun sentences take the same personal suffixes as the present continuous tense and future tense.



Both these sentences have the same personal suffix:

1. Ben İstanbul´a gidiyorum. (verb sentence in present continuous tense)

Ben öğrenciyim. (noun sentence in present tense)


Both these sentences have the same personal suffix:

2. Biz Istanbul´da yaşıyoruz. (verb sentence in present continuous tense)

Biz öğrenciyiz. (noun sentence in present tense)


The personal suffix moves after the question suffix in noun sentences in present tense. In negative noun sentences it moves after "değil".


"Sen öğrencisin." affirmative noun sentence.  

"Sen öğrenci misin?" question noun sentence.  

"Sen öğrenci değilsin." negative noun sentence.  


Of course our vowel harmony rules apply here as well and remember to put a -y buffer between two vowels.


Vowel Harmony in i type suffixes:

a or ı is followed by ı

e or i is followed by i

o or u is followed by u

ö or ü is followed by ü


Vowel Harmony in e type suffixes:

a, ı, o or u is followed by a

e, i, ö, or ü i is followed by e
