lesson 5 - The suffix ´I can´t´

To say ´I can´t´ in turkish you use the suffix ´emez/amaz´

 

example

You can´t be

ol + amaz + sın

olamazsın

 

I can´t emem/amam
You can´t emezsin
He can´t emez
We can´t emeyiz
You can´t emezsiniz
They can´t emezler

 

Looking at the chart above have you noticed anything different?

Try looking at 

I can´t

and

We can´t

Can you see anything different now?

 

With you can´t, he can´t, you can´t and they can´t you use ´emez/amaz´

but

with I can´t you use ´emem´

and

with We can´t you use ´emeyiz´

 

So for the sentence

I can´t come 

gel + eme + m

gelemem

 

We can´t stay

kal + ama + yız

kalamayız

 

Look at some examples below

 

I can´t come gelemem
You can´t be olamazsın
He can´t take alamaz
We can´t see göremeyiz
You can´t give veremezsiniz
They can´t believe inanamazlar

 

Now try making your own sentences and seeing how well you do
