voron wrote:All suffixes except for a few exceptions use either of the two vowel harmony rules. Yes, the harmony type has be learnt for each suffix. The type is usually obvious from how the suffix is presented in a book. If there are two options (with the vowels 'a' and 'e') then it's the big harmony. If there are four options (with the vowels 'i', 'ü', 'ı', 'u'), then it's the small harmony.
Miş/müş/mış/muş is the small harmony suffix.
