Question Forms of Simple Present Tense and Present Continious Tense

 

 

Hello, in this lesson, we are going to talk about the question forms of Present Continious Tense and Simple Present Tense.

"Are you reading?"

"Are we going?"

"Do you know?"

etc...

We do question forms by the simplest question word "mi?". In fourth lessons, I had told about the conjugated forms of "mi?" question word. We will use the same structure here. But before this, let´s remember the conjugation table of "mi?" for both last vowels and pronouns.

 

Pronoun/Vowels

a, ı  (mı?)

e,i  (mi?)

o, u  (mu?)

ö, ü  (mü?)

Ben

yım?

miyim?

muyum?

yüm?

Sen

sın?

misin?

musun?

sün?

O

dır?

midir?

mudur?

dür?

Biz

yız?

miyiz?

muyuz?

yüz?

Siz

sınız?

misiniz?

musunuz?

sünüz?

Onlar

mı?

mi?

mu?

mü?

 

When we want to use conjugated VERB in question form, we consider this conjugated form as a NOUN. We use the Main Forms of conjugations for both Simple Present Tense and Present Continious Tense.

 

Formula is:

 

Main Form of Simple Present Tense/Present Continious Tense + Conjugated "Mi?"

 

Let´s make an example:

 

"Do you reading?"

 

First, let´s detect the Main Form of "okumak"

 

Okur : He, she, it reads. Also the Main Form.

 

The last vowel of of "okur" is "u" and we will select "mu" form. "You" is Sen, and when that happens, we select "musun?"

(Look at the table)

 

Okur musun? : Do you read?

 

Let´s do the same for "Do I read?"

 

Okur muyum?

 

Let´s conjugate "Yapmak" verb for Simple Present Tense for all Pronouns:

 

Yapar mıyım? : Do I do?

 

Yapar mısın? : Do you do?

 

Yapar mı? : Does he/she/it do?

 

Yapar mıyız? : Do we do?

 

Yapar mısınız? : Do you (plural) do?

 

Yaparlar mı? : Do they do?

 

Let´s do this for verb "Bilmek" for Simple Present Tense:

 

Bilir miyim? : Do I know?

 

Bilir misin? : Do you know?

 

Bilir mi? : Does he/she/it know?

 

Bilir miyiz?  :  Do we know?

 

Bilir misiniz? : Do you (plural) know?

 

Bilirler mi? : Do they know?

 

Let´s do this for verb "izlemek / to watch"

İzler miyim? : Do I watch?

 

İzler misin? : Do you watch?

 

İzler mi? : Does he/she/it watch?

 

İzler miyiz? : Do we watch?

 

İzler misiniz? : Do you (plural) watch?

 

İzlerler mi? : Do they watch?

 

When we want to use this structure for Present Continious Tense, because of Main Form of Present Continious ends by "-yor", we always use "mi" for "o" conjugation, "mu?"

 

Okuyor muyum? : Am I reading?

 

Okuyor musun? :  Are you reading?

 

Okuyor mu? : Is he/she/it reading?

 

Okuyor muyuz? : Are we reading?

 

Okuyor musunuz? :  Are you (plural) reading?

 

Okuyorlar mı ? : Are they reading?

 

Let´s do it for "Yapmak"

 

Yapıyor muyum?

 

Yapıyor musun?

 

Yapıyor mu?

 

Yapıyor muyuz?

 

Yapıyor musunuz?

 

Yapıyorlar mı?
