Lesson 4: The indefinite article and the number one


In this lesson you will learn that the word bir can either mean a/an or one depending on its position.

a small childküçük bir çocuk
one big applebir büyük elma

So if we want to say a big apple we will have to put the article after the adjective, unlike in English.

Just as the word very in English, we can use the word çok in Turkish to amplify the adjective.

a very long roadçok uzun bir yol
one very hot coffeebir çok sıcak kahve
