Turkish Adjectives

Learning the Turkish Adjectives displayed below is vital to the language. Turkish Adjectives are words that describe or modify another person or thing in the sentence.

Grammar Tips:

 In Turkish any word that modifies a noun in terms of number, shape, colour etc. can be considered as an adjective. For example:

“Kırmızı kalem” which means the red pencil. Here “kırmızı” defines the colour of the pencil. Since pencil is a noun, kırmızı is an adjective here.

“Uzun bir yol” which means a long way. Here “uzun” ( long ) and bir ( a ) are both adjectives because “uzun” determines the way in terms of distance and “bir” in terms of number.

The basic point is: adjectives modify the nouns while adverbs modify the verbs.

   


Here are some examples:
