8 Important Rules in the Turkish Grammar That You Must Learn

There are some basic grammar rules that will make your life easier when learning Turkish.

  1. Two vowels or two consonants rarely follow each other.
  2. Vowels from a specific type need to proceed the same type of vowels.
  3. Consonants from a specific type need to proceed the same type of consonants.
  4. If you are attaching a suffix to a proper noun, you’ll need to use an apostrophe to separate the suffix from the word.
  5. Word order in English is subject + verb + object whereas in Turkish subject + object + verb
  6. Non-continuant voiceless consonants (p, ç, t, k) tend to go voiced because it is easier to say!
  7. There are three different buffer letters: ‘y’,’ n’ and ‘s’. They prevent two vowels to come after each other.

New techniques focus on different methods without grammar teaching. However, grammar always helps you tremendously. We are grown-ups and we have a higher mental capacity than babies. Also, we do not learn the same way that babies do. Using grammar knowledge effectively make a great amount of progression.

These are a few rules to make you understand and learn the Turkish language easier. We recommend you learn the language at a reputable institute, but of course, there are many other alternatives. Some Turks may want to exchange languages, especially English.
