Turkish language: neuter, article and adjectives
Explanation of the grammar of the Turkish language with regard to neuter words, articles and adjectives.
Turkish has no masculine and feminine words. All words are neuter. For clarification, the gender is sometimes added to indicate whether it is a man or a woman.
|kardeş||erkek kardeş||kız kardeş|
|brother / sister||baby brother||little sister|
|torun||erekek torun||kız torun|
|arkadaş||erkek arkadaş||kız arkadaş|
|friend friend||friend||female friend|
In Dutch there are certain articles (de and het) and an indefinite article (een).
However, the Turkish language has no specific articles but only an indefinite one, namely bir.
The meaning of this is a or a.
The article stands before the noun.
|the House||ev||a house||bir ev|
|the room||oda||a room||bir oda|
|the table||masa||a table||bir masa|
|the garden||bahçe||a garden||bir bahçe|
An adjective precedes the noun. The indefinite article is placed between the adjective and the noun. However, Bir as one stands for the adjective.
|mavi bisiklet||mavi bir bisiklet||bir mavi bisiklet|
|the blue bicycle||a blue bicycle||one blue bicycle|
|küçük balcony||küçük bir balcony||bir küçük balcony|
|the small balcony||a small balcony||one small balcony|
|zengin adam||zengin bir adam||bir zengin adam|
|the rich man||a rich man||a rich man|
