The noun that is affected by the action of a verb is changed to the accusative case. The accusative case is formed by adding the "-i, -ı, -u and -ü" suffixes to the noun depending on the last vowel of the noun.
The accusative case signs the definite object of a verb. The accusative case can be found as an answer to the questions ‘kimi?’ (who?) and ‘neyi?’ (what?)
Neyi açtı? What did she open?
Buzdolabını açtı. She opened the fridge.
Neyi özledi? What did he miss?
Okulu özledi. He missed the school.
Seni yarın arayacağım. I will call you tomorrow.
The noun's ending are changed to '-i', '-ı', '-u' or '-ü' according to the last vowel of the noun.
|Last vowel||Replace '-i' with|
|ı or a||-ı|
|e or i||-i|
|o or u||-u|
|ö or ü||-ü|
When the noun is ending with a vowel, then "y" is added between the noun and the case suffix.
Oda + ı = Odayı
Meyve + i =Meyveyi
The Turkish language has two kinds of -i suffixes.These are the possessive suffix (iyelik eki) and the accusative suffix (belirtme hal eki). The accusative case should not be confused with the third person's possession. The suffixes which indicates the object that belong to a person or object are called possessive suffixes. It can be found as an answer to the question ‘kimin?’ (whose?)
Odayı gördüm. I saw the room.
Example with the possessive suffix
Onun odası boştu. Her room was empty.
Personal pronouns in the accusative case are formed by adding the '-i' suffixes.
