Verbs / Subtitle II - Dative Form

 

 

Hello my friends. Welcome to lesson.

 

Dative Form, or Yönelme Durumu in Turkish, is easier than Accusative Form, because it has got only two suffiex, "-a and -e" which changes by Vowel Harmony. Just like in Accusative Form, we are going to use "y" connection character when a nound ended with a vowel.

 

Now, with a simple table, let´s see the usage of Dative Form suffixes:

 

 

Last Vowel of Pronoun

Suffix Form

a, ı, o, u

-a

e, i, ö, ü

-e

 

Let´s use "door / kapı" at Dative Form. Kapı ends with a vowel, so we must use "y" connection character. Kapı ends with "ı", table says us "use "-a" when the noun ends with "ı" vowel:

 

Kapı + y +a : Kapı is noun, "y" is connection character and "-a" is Dative Form Suffix.

 

Now, let´s use "garden / bahçe" at Dative Form. "bahçe" ends with a vowel too, we will use "y" again. And this noun´s last vowel is "e". Table says, use "-e" if noun´s last vowel is "e"

 

Bahçe + y + e: Bahçe is noun, y is connection and "-e" is Dative Form Suffix.

 

 

I have prepared a table for usage of Dative Form at some Nouns.
