The "if" suffix

If

 

I m
You n
He/she/it No personal ending
We k
You niz/n覺z/nuz/nüz
They ler/lar

 

The tense for ´if´ in turkish is

se / sa

 

Depending on the last letter of the verb the suffix is either se or sa. Let´s take a look at a few examples:

If I came

gel (the vowel is the e)

so we would use ´se´

if I came - gel+se+m

 

If you stay

kal (the vowel is the a)

so we would use ´sa´

if you stay - kal+sa+n

 

 

Let´s do a few more examples:

 

If he goes

git+se - gitse

 

If we watch

izle+se+k - izlesek

 

If you want

iste+se+niz - isteseniz

 

If they visit

ziyaret et+se+ler - ziyaret etseler

 

 

Now what about trying to make some simple sentences with the ´if´ suffix. Let´s take a look

 

If I explain to you

sana anlatsam

 

if you meet me

beni bulusan

 

if he comes here

burada gelse

 

if we rent this house

bu ev k覺ralasak

 

if you study turkish

türkçe ders çal覺san覺z

 

if they fly to Turkey

Türkiye´ye uçsalar
