Turkish Plural Suffix

plural

Creating a plural in Turkish is very easy, it is as simple as creating a plural in English by adding ‘s’ to the end of a word.

The suffix we use to create a plural is:

-ler or -lar

When using the plural suffix we need to remember the vowel harmony. The last vowel in the stem word determines which plural suffix you will use. Below you see which suffix matches which vowel.

vowels for -lar = a , ı , o, u

vowels for -ler = e , i , ö , ü

    HI…. just a friendly suggestion for the quizzes… as well as having the Turkish word,it would also be useful to have the English translation. In other words, I’d learn new words as well as the grammar!

    And because all Turkish nouns are essentially mass nouns (or “uncountables”), you don’t have to use the plural nearly as much. You say “give me a kilo (of) egg”, “five apple,” just as you’d say “five fish” in English.
