"Essential Turkish Suffixes (including postpositions, prefixes, particles and buffers)"
Turkish Suffixes (and their cousins) -- the glue that binds Turkish expression...
Turkish suffixes (along with their equally slippery cousins -- the Turkish postpositions, prefixes, particles and buffers) can, as we've admitted elsewhere, cause English-speakers to seek solace in almost any nearby 'wet' bar.
That’s because 'agglutination' (i.e. joining multiple suffixes to make new words, phrases, and even sentences -- with nary a break between letters) is not natural to us English language-speakers; whereas in Turkish, it’s as natural as breathing.
For example, according to the 'The Guinness Book of World Records' the longest unbroken word/sentence in the known world is Turkish: Çekoslovakyalılaştırabilemediklerimizlerdenmisiniz? -- a 50-letter word/sentence containing 12 suffixes that means: 'Are you in the group of persons that we couldn't Czechoslovakianize?' (To which we reply, “Please pass the Rakı.”)
The point is that, no matter where you finally come to grips with the subject of Turkish suffixes (and their cousins), it's not going to be at a 'picnic in the park'. And, since we promise to be ‘gentle’… it might as well be here.
Still (as we hope you'll agree), there will be 'joy in the morning'… eventually. Because as the Turkish suffixes (and their cousins) begin to align themselves logically in your mind, you'll start to feel the 'fun' of the language reemerging for you -- as it reveals its ancient secrets in the words of the people not of the textbooks!
