Prononciation Tips for Daily Speech of Tenses

 

We always say that Turkish is phonetic language; we read it as we write. But in daily speech, this rule sometimes changes.

 

Except some points of Present Simple Tense and Future Tense, Turkish is a phonetic language but daily prononciation sometimes changes it. Let´s see:

 

Yapıyorum means "I am doing" and it is a Present Tense sentence. We pronounce it how we read.

 

Yapıyor means "he, she, it" is doing. In daily speech, "r" of -"yor" isn´t PRONOUNCED.

 

We pronounce it "yapıyo"

 

Görüyor > Görüyo

 

Biliyor > Biliyo

 

Same is valid for negativeness:

 

Yapmıyor > Yapmıyo

 

Bilmiyor > Bilmiyo

 

Gitmiyor > Gitmiyo

 

Yapıyorsun means "you are doing". In daily speech, "r" of -yor ISN´T PRONOUNCED, TOO.

 

Yapıyorsun > Yapıyosun

 

Biliyorsun > Biliyosun

 

Gidiyorsun > Gidiyosun

 

Same is valid for "Siz"

 

Yapıyorsunuz > Yapıyosunuz

 

Biliyorsunuz > Biliyosunuz

 

Gidiyorsunuz > Gidiyosunuz

 

Yapıyorlar means "they are doing".

 

Yapıyorlar > Yapıyolar

 

Gidiyorlar > Gidiyolar

 

Biliyorlar > Biliyolar

 

We pronounce questions forms in same way;

 

Gidiyor musunuz? (Are you going?) > Gidiyo musunuz?

 

Yapıyor musun? (Are you doing?) > Yapıyo musun?

 

Bilmiyor mu? (Doesn´t he/she/it know?) > Bilmiyo mu?

 

Gitmiyor muyuz? (Aren´t we going?) > Gitmiyo muyuz?

 

PRONONCIATION TIPS FOR FUTURE TENSE

 

Yapacağım means "I am going to do"

 

In daily speech it is generally pronounced as "yapıcam"

 

Gideceğim > Gidicem

 

Gideceksin > Gidiceksin

 

Gelmeyeceğim (I am not going to come) > Gelmi(y)cem

 

Çalışacağım (I am going to work) > Çalışıcam

 

Müzik dinleyeceğim (I am going to listen music) > Müzik dinli(y)cem

 

Okumayacağız (We arent going to read) > Okum u/ı ycaz.

 

Daily prononciation of these two tenses is a little complicated. These forms are used in informal/daily speech.
