Lesson 100: Pronominalized determiners
Pronominalized determiners are formed by adding possessive suffixes to the indefinite determiners in the last lesson. With this suffix, we can use indefinite determiners stand-alone — without having to put a noun behind them — even though they still refer to things that are not specified. We use the possessive suffix to create pronominalized determiners, but there is not necessarily a possessive relationship when we use the third person singular suffix.
We cannot use first or second person singular suffixes to construct pronominalized determiners.
|Pronominalized Determiners||English Singular||Turkish Singular||English Plural||Turkish Plural|
|First person||-||-||some of us||bazı(lar)ımız|
|Second person||-||-||some of you||bazı(lar)ınIz|
|Third person||some||bazısı||some of them||bazıları|
Of these determiners, birkaç, çok, hiçbir, kaç and ne kadar cannot be used with third person plural.
