Simple Past Tense III - Negative Form of -idi

 

 

Hello friends; this time we are going to talk about the negative form of Story Mood of Past Tense, -idi. Likewise in previous tenses, we are going to put negativeness suffixes -me/-ma between stem and tense suffix. Let´s see this with a simple formula:

 

If last vowel of verb stem is one of "a,ı,o,u", formula is:

 

Verb stem + -ma + dı

 

If last vowel of verb stem is one of "e,i,ö,ü", formula is:

 

Verb stem + -me + di

 

Let´s make examples:

"Yaptı" means he/she/it did. So, how can we say he/she/it DIDN´T do? Very easy; let´s use the formula. Last and only vowel of "yap" stem is "a". Let´s put the keys into formula:

 

Yap + ma + : He/she/it didn´t do!

 

It is too easy, isn´t it?

 

Do the same with "gör" stem, which means "see".

 

Gör + me + di : He/she/it didn´t see!

 

Let´s conjugate "açmak, kapatmak, okumak and gitmek" verbs:

 

madım : I didn´t open

 

madın: You didn´t open

 

madı : He/she/it didn´t open

 

madık: We didn´t open

 

madınız : You didn´t open

 

madılar : They didn´t open.

 

 

Kapatmadım: I didn´t close

 

Kapatmadın : You didn´t close

 

Kapatmadı : He/she/didn´t close

 

Kapatmadık : We didn´t close

 

Kapatmadınız : You didn´t close

 

Kapatmadılar : They didn´t close

 

 

 

Okumadım : I didn´t read

 

Okumadın : You didn´t read

 

Okumadı : He/she/it didn´t read

 

Okumadık : We didn´t read

 

Okumadınız : You didn´t read

 

Okumadılar : They didn´t read

 

 

 

 

Gitmedim : I didn´t go

 

Gitmedin : You didn´t go

 

Gitmedi : He/she/it didn´t go

 

Gitmedik : We didn´t go

 

Gitmediniz : You didn´t go

 

Gitmediler : They didn´t go
