How to Form Negative Sentences

1- Negative Form of the Verbs


To make a verb negative, add –me suffix at the root of the verb. Surely, this suffix should be adapted to the verb by using vowel harmony. 


For example;

beklemek : to wait  

bekle-mek : to wait ! Here bekle is the root of the verb.

bekle-me-mek : not to wait 


oturmak : to sit

otur-mak : to sit ! Here otur is the root of the verb.

Otur-ma-mak : not to sit 

Here we used –ma instead of –me according to the vowel harmony.  


Now look at the verbs below and try to write their negative form.

bakmak / saklamak / gelmek / yenilmek / ölmek / üzülmek / bak覺nmak 


2- Negative Forms of Nouns and Adjectives  


To make a noun or an adjective negative, add “deil” at the and of the noun or adjective


For example;

Bu bir bilgisayar.   (This is a computer.)

Bu bir bilgisayar deil. (This is not a computer.)

Bu çok güzel.(This is very beautiful.)

Bu çok güzel deil.(This is not very beautiful.)

Bu çok güzel bir k覺z.(She is a very beautiful girl.)

Bu çok güzel bir k覺z deil.(She is not a very beautiful girl.)

Now look at the sentences below and try to write their negative forms.

Bu bir araba  /  Bu güzel /  Bu çiçek k覺rm覺z覺 / Bu bir k覺z
