Welcome to the fourth Turkish lesson about the plural. This time we will learn about the singular form and what it looks like in the plural, followed by grammar rules, finally a list of emergency phrases.
The plural is the form which refers to more than one object or person. For example: I speak two languages the plural here is [languages] because it refers to more than one [language]. The examples below use plurals in different ways and places to demonstrate how they look when converted from their singular form.
|Grammar + Rules - Turkish|
|I speak one language|
[singular form] Ben bir dil konuşuyorum
|we speak three languages|
[plural noun] Biz üç dil konuşuyoruz
|he visits many countries|
[adverb + plural noun] O birsürü ülkeyi ziyaret eder
|they are happy now|
[plural pronoun] Onlar şimdi mutlu
|she has five red shoes|
[adjective + plural noun] Onun beş kırmızı ayakkabısı var
|I want a sandwich without onions|
[preposition + plural noun] Ben soğansız sandviç istiyorum
The following is a list of examples showing both the singular and plural form. This demonstrates how the plural is used with humans, objects and animals.
Now it's time to practice your Turkish by looking at these phrases which are related to emergencies. Be prepared when traveling abroad, just in case you need help or by offering help to someone else. I recommend writing these expressions down on a notebook before traveling.
