Instead of using prepositions to convey spatial relationships like we do in English, Turkish uses postpositions - words that come after nouns with which they form a possessive link. So, "beside the metro" becomes "the metro's side" and "under the table" becomes "the table's underneath." It's less complicated than it sounds.


Use the postposition üst with -e, -de, -den or -i.

Below and Beside

Use the postpositions alt and yan.

Front and Behind

Use the postpositions ön and arka.

Inside and Outside

Use the postpositions iç and dış.
