Gerunds is the forty-sixth skill (assuming read left to right) in the language tree for Turkish. It has three lessons and teaches another kind of infinitive and when it is used.

Grammar Notes[]

There is another type of infinitive commonly used in Turkish. Previous lessons taught the -mAk infinitive, but more commonly used is the -mA- infinitive. This one is commonly used with lazım or as an noun-verb (called a gerund). It also has a genitive subject and a possessive suffix that matches it immediately after the -mA- which differentiates it from the universal -mAk infinitive.
