TURKISHGRAMMARTURKISH GRAMMARUPDATEDACADEMIC EDITION 2013FOREWORDThe Turkish Grammar book that you have just started reading is quite differentfrom the grammar books that you read in schools. This kind of Grammar is known astraditional grammar. The main difference of a traditional grammar and that of atransformational one is that the first one describes a natural language as a staticobject, but the second one describes both the parts of the language engine and howit runs. This is like learning about a motionless car. There is something lacking in thisdescription. It is the dynamics of the parts of a car that runs a hundred and twentykilometers an hour.Traditional grammars describe only the physical appearance of a language; theydo not mind what goes on behind the curtain. The mind of a human being works likethe engine of a sports car. It arranges and chooses words matching one another,transforms simple sentence units to use in different parts of sentences, and recollectsmorphemes and phonemes to be produced by the human speech organs. All theseactivities are simultaneously carried out by the human mind.Another point that the traditional grammarians generally miss is that they write thegrammar of a certain language to teach it to those who have been learning it from thetime when they were born up to the time when they discover something calledgrammar. This is like teaching a language to professional speakers.Then, what is the use of a grammar? I believe most people were acquainted withit when they started learning a foreign language. Therefore, a grammar written forthose who are trying to learn a second language is very useful both in teaching andlearning a second language.I started teaching English as a second language in 1952, a long time ago. Yearspassed and one day I found myself as a postgraduate Fulbright student at theUniversity of Texas at Austin in 1960. Although I studied there for only a short period,I learnt enough from Prof. Archibald A. Hill and Dr. De Camp to stimulate me to learnmore about Linguistics.After I came back to Turkey, it was difficult to find books on linguistics inbooksellers in Istanbul. Thanks to The American Library in Istanbul, I was able toborrow the books that attracted my attention.In those books, I discovered Noam Chomsky, whose name I had not heard during mystay in the U.S.A.I must confess that I am indebted to the scholars and the library above in writingthis Turkish Grammar.I am also grateful to my son Dr. Özgür Göknel who encouraged me to write thisbook and to Vivatinell Warwick U.K., which sponsored to publish it.YÜKSEL GÖKNELI3

TURKISH GRAMMAR UPDATED ACADEMIC EDITION 2013LOGICAL, MORPHEMIC, AND ORAL SEQUENCINGNoam Chomsky and Steven Pinker in their books assert that the humanmind has an inborn logical ability which seperates a body of thought (asentence) into two parts to produce sentences. A person thinks logically thata sentence should be about something or someone, and uses them assubjects, and uses all the information given about the subjects as predicates.Chomsky calls them Nominal Phrase and Verbal Phrase, in short "NP VP". Additionally, the predicate part (VP) is also logically seperated into twoparts as a verb, and an object 'V NP'. These logical storages are emptybefore one starts learning his/her native language. When someone startshearing the sounds of his language, he loads these sounds with meaning,and inserts them into these empty logical storages. Arranging these storagesin succession is also learned while someone is being exposed to his nativelanguage. Therefore, the order of the logical storages change from languageto language. These logical storages, and their learned succession are calledthe logical sequence of a sentence. The so called storages are also flexibleenough to hold the shortest and the longest language units.The word verb "V" covers a verb root, a verb stem, or a verb frame, andall the inflectional suffixes attached to them such as "ed", "ing", "s", andauxiliary verbs such as "must", "may", "might", "can", "could", etc. precededby them. The verbs together with these inflectional suffixes and auxiliaryverbs constitude a verb composition concept and called a verb "V".All subjects and objects, whether long or short, are Nominal Phrases. If averb is intransitive, it does not need an object (NP), so the predicate parthas only a verb, and some adverbs or adverbials. The predicates that have"be" verbs are also considered Verbal Phrases.The sentences described above are of three kinds:1. A subject, a transitive verb, and an object: Jack killed a mouse.subjNP2. A subject and an intransitive verb: Jack sleeps.subjNPVVP3. A subject and a "be" complement: Jack is brave.subjNP15VVPVobj (NP)VP

TURKISH GRAMMAR UPDATED ACADEMIC EDITION 2013Although these logical storages are inborn, their sequencing is learnedthrough the experiences of an individual. Therefore, the sequencing of thesubject and predicate, and that of the subject, verb, and object changefrom language to language. For instance in English:Iam coming.Subj (NP)pred (VP)(There are no personal suffixes attached to verbs in English.)In Turkish: Geliyor –Vum (ge*li*yo*rum)subj (NP)In Turkish, a personal concept is expressed by a personal suffix either attached to a verb at the end of a sentence, or expressed by both a pronoun inthe beginning and a suffix at the end of a sentence. Using personal suffixesattached to the ends of the Turkish sentences (except for the third personsingular) is a grammatical necessity.Furthermore, the subject, verb, and object sequence of the English language differs in Turkish as subject (pronoun), object, verb, subject (suffix);or object, verb, subject (suffix):English:Weare pickingsubj (pron)VçiçekTurkish 1: Bizsubj (pron)objflowers.objtopluyor-uz. We are picking flowers.V-subj (suffix)Turkish 2: Çiçek topluyor-uz. We are picking flowers.objV-subj (suffix)The reason why there may be two identical alternative sentences in Turkishis that one should compulsorily use a personal suffix attached to the verb ina sentence, but if he wants to emphasize the subject, he could also use apronoun in the beginning of a sentence as well as a personal suffix representing the pronoun at the end.If we use a sentence without a personal suffix, the sentence becomes ungrammatical although it is understandable:*Ben yarın Ankara'ya gidiyor. (ungrammatical)(Ben) yarın Ankara'ya gidiyor-um. (grammatical) (“Ben” could be ignored.)*Ben sen-i seviyor. (ungrammatical)(Ben) sen-i veviyor-um. (grammatical) (“Ben” could be ignored.)As a general syllabication rule in Turkish, the single underlined consonants of the words or allomorphs detach from their syllables, and attach tothe first vowels of the following morphemes as in the examples above. This16

TURKISH GRAMMAR UPDATED ACADEMIC EDITION 2013operation of the oral sequence of the Turkish language reorganizes themorphemic sequence to produce harmonic syllable sequences. The linesthat are put under the consonants are not used in writing.One could estimate that there exist empty inborn logical subject-predicate,and subject-verb-object storages in one's mind ready to be filled with thelearned sequences of phonemes and morphemes in a newborn baby. Anewborn baby hears the sounds of his/her native language, learns whichsounds convey which words and morphemes. He/she also hears the sequences of subject-predicate, and subject-verb-object, and the syllablesof his/her native language. All these sounds and information gather in itsmemory, and are inserted into the inborn storages to produce sensiblesentences.All human beings are born eager to learn. Learning his/her language is aninherent instinct in everybody, which Steven Pinker calls it "Language Instinct". Children do not know what a subject, or an object is, but as soon asthey learn the interrogative concepts “who?”, “what?”, “when?”, ”where?”,“why?”, “how?”, etc., they start asking questions. In all languages, questionwords ask for the essential parts of a sentence such as “subject”, “object”,and “adverbs of time, place, reason”, etc. So, he logically knows that “who”and “what” asks for the subject, and “whom” and “what” asks for the object,and he also understands that all the answers to the questions “who”, and“what” are subjects, and “whom”, and “what” are the objects. For instance:Jack found a watch.whowhatJack’s sister found a watch.whowhatThe boy who was walking along the street found a watch.whowhatThe boy who was walking along the street found the watch that I lost.whowhatJack saw a rabbit in the garden yesterday.whowhatwherewhenThe house that Jack built collapsed suddenly last night.whathowwhenJack found a watch while he was walking down the streed.whowhatwhenJack passed his examination with difficulty because he was lazy.whowhathow17why

TURKISH GRAMMAR UPDATED ACADEMIC EDITION 2013Jack saw Mary among the crowd.whowhomwhereJack bought some flowers for his mother.whowhatfor whomJack was coming from school.whofrom whereThe parts that are not underlined in the sentences above are verbs. Ifsomeone wants to ask about these verbs he says, “What did jack do?”, andfor the underlined parts he says, “From where was Jack coming?”, “Wherewas Jack coming from?”, “Whom did Jack see?”, etc.Consequently, it is possible to say that a person fills the subject and predicate logical storages using interrogative instruments.As in all natural languages, the Turkish language production system governsthree groups of sequences. The first sequence is the logical sequencewhich governs the basic network of a sentence in which all sentences takeform.The second sequence is the morphemic sequence which arranges the sequence of the morphemes, and allomorphs in the Turkish words.The third sequence is the oral or phonological sequence, which arrangesthe syllables and the overall harmony of the words in a sentence.THE TURKISH GRAMMARAfter the above short survey of the universal Transformational GenerativeGrammar (with some interpretations of my own), we can begin with thesound system of The Turkish language.Turkish has 29 letters in its alphabet. Some of these letters / o, u, a, ı / and /ö, ü, e, i / are vowels (ünlüler), and the others / b, c, ç, d, f, g, ğ, h, j, k, l,m, n, p, r, s, ş, t, v, y, z / are consonants (ünsüzler).All the letters above represent phonemes, that is why they are shown between “/ /” signs. Phonemics is not interested in detailed phonetic differences. Some of the vowels / ı, ö, ü / do not exist in English. They are pronounced: /ı/ as in English “again”; /ö/ as in German “schön”; and /ü/ as inGerman “hütte” respectively.Among the consonants, there are the / ç, ş, ğ / phonemes, which are pronounced as “ch” as in “church”, “sh” as in “fish”; and to produce the /ğ/18

To understand how these suffix chains are arranged, oneshould understand the vowel and consonant harmony rules of the Turkishlanguage before one begins to atta
