The grammar

To help you have a feel for how the Turkish language works the book starts with a brief introduction about Turkish spelling, pronunciation, word order and parts of speech such as verbs, nouns and adjectives. After the introduction you will study 36 units presented in order of difficulty. 

Each unit covers one part of Turkish grammar explained by making references to English so that you can compare relevant areas of grammar. Areas where you may have difficulty have been treated with particular care and attention.

Each grammar topic is illustrated by plenty of real-life examples written by using the equivalents of 2000 core (basic) English words. And each and every example in the book is translated into English.

Besides grammar, easy Turkish Grammar with answers 1 teaches lots of everyday phrases and expressions so that it may also make a useful handbook for daily Turkish.

In the book some unique conventions are used for spelling, pronunciation and grammar in order to help with the learning process. Each set of suffixes in Turkish, which might be mind-boggling for speakers of European languages such as English, is highlighted with a different colour throughout the book so that you can easily spot the order and function of every suffix. You can find the colour-legend at the bottom of the pages.

The exercises

As practice makes perfect, the utmost care has been devoted to writing the exercises. At the end of the units you can find an extensive set of exercises. 

 

The appendices

There are 11 supplementary lessons.

 

The key

The key includes the answers to all the exercises in the book. Online audio (both for print and Kindle versions) for the answers is available. You can find the link in the book.

 

The index

The index is unique in that the entries include only titles in English so that you can compare relevant areas of grammar. For example, if you want to know how to say must or express obligation in Turkish, all you need to do is refer to these titles. Here you will find information not only about how to say must in Turkish but also how Turkish suffix for must is also used to mean should. Or if you want to add -ness to an adjective or -ship to a noun, you will be referred to the relevant page where you will find that Turkish only has the suffix -lik for both.

500 Turkish Words in Context provides the most common Turkish words and suffixes for A1 and A2 learners of Turkish.

In 500 Turkish Words in Context you will find four sets of words in this order:

  • 1-150  150 nouns

  • 151-300  150 adjectives

  • 300-450  150 verbs

  • 450-500  50 adverbs, pronouns, postpositions, conjunctions, question words, and suffixes

Each set includes brief grammar tips and useful patterns. Each word is exemplified in least one sentence and each example sentence is composed – to a great extent – of the preceding words on the list. So, the carefully structured list enables you to recycle the words you have already studied.

Some of the 500 headwords include further meaning relationships. For example, the headword renk (colour) covers the names of colours and giysi (clothes) covers some items of clothing and footwear. In a similar way, the headword başarmak (to succeed) lists other words from the same root such as başarı (success), başarılı (successful) and başarısız (unsuccessful). So, the number of words you can see in the index is well above 2000. You can practise all words by taking online quizzes and download the audios (4.11 hours) of all the words and example sentences in the book. You can find all the links in the book.

500 Turkish Words in Context also includes:

  • The most common everyday expressions and pleasantries.

  • 500-word glossary of English and Turkish words with the same origin. All you need to do to add these words to your vocabulary is to see and hear them once. You will never forget them.

  • An index providing easy access to the words and examples.

How much can this word list help to improve your Turkish?

In a nutshell, a lot. This core vocabulary covers a great part of any conversation or text in Turkish you will be involved in and provides a sound linguistic foundation to build upon. Personally, I have benefitted tremendously from such a list as a learner of Spanish. After mastering Spanish core vocabulary, I can enjoy Netflix shows and films dubbed in Spanish with the help from Spanish subtitles. I can understand podcasts at A2 level and even daily newspapers to a great extent. My next challenge is to speak the language in real settings. But I have already built enough confidence to hold daily conversations in a variety of settings and survive in a Spanish speaking country.

The most common Turkish verbs


200 MOST COMMON TURKISH VERBS IN CONTEXT (2nd Edition) provides the most common Turkish verbs in context with conjugation tables and practice exercises. The 200 verbs were compiled by consulting Turkish frequency dictionaries and books for learners of Turkish.

The case suffixes required by these verbs are also provided. Each verb in the list is illustrated in 4 or 5 sentences. The example sentences are largely made up of the verbs introduced previously. The structured presentation enables you to recycle the verbs you have already studied. If you want to study a specific verb, you can easily find it from the index.

In addition, almost every verb in the list contains further meaning relationships. For example, for the verb konuşmak (to speak), these words from the same root are listed: konuşma (speech), konuşmacı (speaker), konuşkan (talkative).

And the following expressions: konuşma yapmak (to make a speech), havadan sudan konuşmak (to talk about this and that) and saçma sapan konuşmak (to talk nonsense). This means that you will learn many more words and expressions besides the 200 verbs.

You will also find lots of useful tips on spelling, pronunciation and grammar
