Lesson 169: Verbalizing suffixes: -lE

Turkish has a number of suffixes that create verbs. One such suffix is -lE. This is a productive suffix that creates verbs out of nominals (nouns, adjectives, adverbs etc.). The meaning of it is highly dependent on the verb, and it can be very unrelated to the root word. Some examples:

taş
stone
taşlamak
to stone
iki
two
ikilemek
to double
pat!
boom! (the sound of an explosion)
patlamak
to explode
