General Direct Objects


In Turkish, if you have a general direct object, there is no need to put any case or suffix on the object
itself. A general direct object is one that uses “a/an” or the plural without “the.” If you want to be extra
specific, you can add the numeral bir to make sure that the meaning “a/an” is given. For example:

Turkish English

O portakal yer. He/She/It eats oranges or He/She/It eats an orange.

O bir portakal yer. He/She/It eats an orange.

Just keep in mind, "O portakallar yer" is simply wrong in Turkish.
