Lesson 72: With and without

You already learned that with can be translated with the suffix -lE in Turkish. In this lesson you will learn that in other cases you have to translate with using the suffix -lİ.

The suffix -lE is used when with means by means of or together with. The suffix -lİ is used when with means something more like containing.

The suffix -lİ also has a counterpart, namely -sİz, meaning without.

Three tea with sugar please. Üç tane şekerli çay lütfen.
I want coffee without sugar. Şekersiz kahve istiyorum.
