-e as adverb - 1

It is used making reiterations. It is used to express how the verb is happening, happened, was done,.... etc. With another words, it tells here the style of happening. You get the answer of the question "how did it happen?" or "..is .. happening?" etc. etc. In this task, "-e" is synonym of "-erek".


But the difference of "-e" is the fact that it also expresses in the same time that the thing happened in a few times. The purpose of making reiterations is already to express that the verb happens a few times or many times. The suffix "-erek" hasn´t the several-times-happening meaning, but "-e" has.
