Relative Pronouns is the sixty-fourth skill (assuming read left to right) in the language tree for Turkish. It has one lesson and teaches the construction of relative phrases in Turkish.

Grammar NotesEdit

Instead of words such as "who", "which", and "that" for relative pronouns, Turkish adds a suffix to the verb and then uses the entire phrase as an adjective for the person. This suffix is -(y)An, and it attaches to the verb stem:

  • Verb stem + (y)An

It is then placed just before the person who is doing the thing in question. Normal word order is preserved for such phrases as well.


  • çevirmek = to translate
  • öpmek = to kiss
  • tercih etmek = to choose
  • etkilemek = to affect
  • bağırmak = to shout
