The Personal Suffix

Turkish doesn't use a verb to say "to be." It uses a suffix that changes depending on who you are talking about (me, you, us, etc). Unlike English, Turkish also has two different ways of expressing "you": one for the singular and another for the plural or formal case.


I, you, he, she, it, we, they.
