-          Sen is used just for second person singular. It doesn’t have a formal meaning as it has in English.

-          Siz is used for second person plural and it is also the formal version of  sen.  

-          Since there is no masculine and feminine difference in Turkish, O is used for he/she/it.

English

I come

Sen gelirsin.

You come

O gelir.

He/She/It comes

Biz geliriz.

Siz gelirsiniz.

Advanced Notes :

 

-          Second person plural siz can be seen as sizler. Both give the same meaning.

           Siz     bu ülkenin geleceisiniz. (You are the future of this country.)

 

-          Biz pronoun can be used instead of ben to boast.

           Biz cihan  padiah覺y覺z. ( I am the sultan of the world.)

 

-          Biz pronoun can be seen as bizler to be exaggerated or boasted.

           Bizler çok büyük bir milletin torunlar覺y覺z. ( We are the grandchildren of a great nation.)
