Building Questions
Answer questions 1 - 5 based on the following text:

To build questions in present continuous tense, we put the question suffix -mı,mi,mu,mü between the tense suffix and personal suffix. Also the question suffix is written one space apart like a separated word.

 

Example:

seviyorsun: sev+iyor+sun 

sev : verb stem  

iyor : present continuous tense suffix 

sun : second person personal suffix 

 

Now we add the question suffix:

seviyor musun? : sev + iyor + mu +sun 

sev : verb stem  

iyor : present continuous tense suffix 

mu : question suffix

sun : second person personal suffix 

 

As you see the only difference is that the question suffix is added before the personal suffix.

 

Here is a conjugation list of sevmek in present continuous tense:


Affirmative:

ben   seviyorum

sen   seviyorsun

o     seviyor

biz   seviyoruz

siz   seviyorsunuz

onlar seviyorlar


Question:

ben   seviyor muyum?

sen   seviyor musun?

o     seviyor mu?

biz   seviyor muyuz?

siz   seviyor musunuz?

onlar seviyorlar mı?

 

Negative:

ben   sevmiyorum

sen   sevmiyorsun

o     sevmiyor

biz   sevmiyoruz

siz   sevmiyorsunuz

onlar sevmiyorlar

 

Each dialog has a missing question. Looking at the answer, build the correct question.


Example:

This is the given sentence: Hayır, ben Ankara´yı hiç sevmiyorum.

This is the question you build: Sen Ankara´yı seviyor musun?
