Can someone please explain the grammar of these verbs? İs the suffix simply -erek / -arak and is Y the bufferletter?

Can someone please give some example sentences where this kind of verb is used, with English translations.

Thank you in advance.

It is the gerunds of state.
The gerunds of state -erek / -arak is formed by adding -erek / -arak to the verb base: yürü-y-erek, koş-arak, çalış-arak, dinle-y-erek, anla-y-arak, ("y" is the buffer letter)…
When the suffix -erek / -arak is added to the verbs “demek” and “yemek” the “e” in the verb bases changes to “i”: diyerek, yiyerek.

The gerunds of state -erek / -arak is used to express how the action occured, or in what manner it occured. It corresponds to “……ing” or “by ……ing” in English. The important point is: the gerunds of state -erek / -arak is used in the sense of “while”. That’s, the main action occurs while an other action is going on.

Çocuklar koşarak parka gittiler. (The children went to the park by running.)
Taksim’den Beşiktaşâ€™a yürüyerek gittik. (We went to Beşiktaş from Taksim on foot)
Gözlerinin içine bakarak “seni seviyorum” dedi. (Looking into her eyes “I love you” he said.)
Titreyerek ellerimi kaldırdım. (Trembling, I raised my hands.)
Mehmet kapıyı çarparak odadan çıktı. (Mehmet went out of the room by slamming the door.)

Konuşmayarak gel.
Konuşmadan gel.

The gerunds of state suffix can't be added to a negative verb.

"Konuşmadan gel": adding the suffix -den to a verbal noun conveys the sense of "without"

Konuşarak gelme.

or

Konuşmadan gel.

Quoting qdemir:

Konuşmadan gel.

I think it's OK when you add -arak to a negative verb. What do you mean "can't be added"?

Second thing I think -dan is added to the negative verb stem in "konuşmadan". It should be thought of as -madan instead of -ma + -dan. -ma part should be negative verb suffix -ma- because the syllable before -ma- is stressed and besides if we accept it as -ma infinitive, where does the negation come from then? I don't think -dan part makes it negative.

You are right. That should be -meden / -madan.
