Lesson 120: The pronominalizing suffix -ki

The pronominalizing -ki is usually used for talking about things in relation to each other. In this form, -ki is attached to a genetive case suffix. For example, benimki means mine and arabanınki means the car's.

Remember that -ki does not behave according to vowel harmony.

My grandfather is alive, (how about) yours? Benim dedem yaşıyor, seninki?

If suffixes follow -ki, they are preceded by a buffer letter n.

You're taller than me. Sizin boyunuz benimkinden daha uzun.
