:) You are all wonderful, friends. Frankly, I know Turkish but I wouldn't have been able to describe the subject as well as you if I had been asked.

As you have already stated, "Ali süt içer" refers to Ali's general preference in life. For example, in my family, everyone prefers a different kind of drink for breakfast. I like tea, my sister likes coffee and Ali drinks milk.

"Ali sütü içer" refers to particular milk which is known by the speaker and the listener at a particular time. I.e. Ali drinks the milk.

You can ask me for examples and excuse me if I can't describe the grammar well. :blush:

Nice example.

I think I would have said 'Ali süt içiyor' for the second, that would also indicate that it's more specific right?

In Dutch all three of them would be the same...
Interests: lots.
Motivation: little.

Corrections appreciated.

Here are a few situations where we use "Geniş Zaman" and "Şimdiki zaman".

Konuşma 1:
Ayşe: Kahvaltı hazır. Evde meyve suyu var mı?
Ali : Hiç kalmamış. Ben gidip marketten meyve suyu alayım.
Ayşe: Sabah sabah yorma kendini. Dolapta süt var. Bugünlük o sütü içeriz.
Ali: Tamam o zaman. Hadi masaya oturalım.

Konuşma 2:
Osman: Bizimkiler kahvaltıda genellikle çay içer ama ben süt içerim.
Mehtap: Ben de hep süt içerim. Süt daha sağlıklı.

Konuşma 3:
Anne: Ali nerede?
Baba: Mutfakta.
Anne: Ne yapıyor?
Baba: Süt içiyor.

Konuşma 4:
Aydın: Bu sütün son kullanma tarihi iki gün geçmiş. Ben bu sütü içmem.
Feyza: Ver bir de ben bakayım şunun tarihine. Haklısın. Bu sütün son kullanma tarihi geçmiş.
Orhan: Verin bana, ben o sütü içerim. Bana bir şey olmaz.

Thanks for those examples. This still seems to be the most difficult thing in Turkish because I came here with a similar question:

I wonder: is there a difference in meaning between: 'yağmur yağar' and 'yağmur yağıyor', could you think of an example for me?
Interests: lots.
Motivation: little.

Hi!

Yes, there is a diffence between two sentences:

Yağmur yağar is a simple present tense.

Yağmur yağıyor is a present continuous tense.

For instance;

Karadeniz Bölgesinde her mevsim yağmur yağar = It rains in the Black Sea Region in every season.

Şu an yağmur yağıyor, şemsiyemi almam gerek = It's raining right now, I should take my umbrella.

I think I understood it. "Look who's here!"?

The person who wrote the sentence isn't a native speaker of Turkish, either. :P

Do they teach the meaning of the "vay" in Turkish lessons?

Ordinarily, they wouldn't; just as they do not ordinarily teach the meaning of "heck" or "gosh" in English lessons :)

I would translate "Vay, kim gelmiş" as "Hey, look at who is here!" which is a common turn of phrase in American English. These are similar also in that depending on intonation, they can express a wide range of sentiments, from "pleasant surprise" to "belligerence" (imagine Polat Alemdar or Clint Eastwood walking into a den of iniquity--these could be the "welcoming" words from the "boss" or his top henchman).

Düzeltiyorum:
Selam UniLang'çiler

Soruyu cevaplamaya gelirsek, benim bu tarz bildiğim hiç kanal yok, zaten YouTube'daki pek çok Türkçe kanalda da saçma sapan şeyler var ve hiçbiri eğitici dahi değil, tıpkı ABD ve Birleşik Krallık gibi ülkelerdeki pek çok kanalda olduğu gibi.

Yok bilmem cezalı oyunlar, yok oyun oynarken çekilen videolar, yok makyaj videoları... Bıktım artık bunları (özellikle de son zamanlarda moda olan cezalı oyun saçmalığını) her gün YouTube'da görmekten. İnsanları kendilerini tamamen izleyecek, öğrenecek kadar aptal ve enayi sanıyorlar, ama insanlar onların sandığı gibi değil. Erkekler genellikle oyun ve cezalı oyun videoları yaparken, kızlar da çoğunlukla makyaj, rutin, alışveriş ve az da olsa oyun videosu yapıyor.

What does "Biz onun yoldaşiarıyız" mean? On google translate it gives me "biz onun yoldaşar(ı)" as "We are his comrades." But then what is the suffix "-ıyız?"

The suffix "-yız" means "we are".

biz = we
onun = his
yoldaş = comrade
-lar = plural suffix
-ı = 3rd singular possessive suffix
-yız = (we) are

That makes sense. I wonder why google translate had such a problem with it.

Selam! I've seen both of these phrases used to express possession ("I have..."), what's the difference between the two - or are they interchageable?

Benim (bir) köpeğim var.
Köpek bende.

Benim bir köpeğim var = I have a dog.
Köpek bende = I have the dog.

I have a question about the genitive. I know that most nouns take -In as the suffix in the genitive, but are there any that take -m instead? Like if for example you were talking about a class's book, in which you are a part of class, would one say:

Sınıfım kitabı

Or would one say

Sınıfın kitabı?

Thanks!
