The word order in Turkish is flexible. One sentence can be written in different word orders.
In Turkish, one sentence can be written in different word orders. All of the sentences below have the same meaning but the placement of the stress is different. The first sentence shows the neutral word order (subject-object-verb) and the stress is on ‘eve’.
The most common word order that is used in the Turkish sentences is: 'Subject - Object - Verb' Generally, the verb takes a place at the end, but it can be anywhere in the sentence.
Subject + Object + Verb
|Subject||Object||Verb||Turkish sentence with neutral word order||Translation|
|Ben (I am)||kitap (a book)||okuyorum (reading)||Ben kitap okuyorum.||I am reading a book.|
|Sen (You)||bugün (today)kahve (coffee)||içmedin (didn't drink)||Sen bugün kahve içmedin.||You didn't drink coffee today.|
The Turkish personal pronouns are generally omitted because the person is mentioned in the adjective declension or the verb conjugation.
Adverbs of manner are the words that show how the act is done and usually placed before the verb.
Adverbs of place are generally placed before the verb. Unlike adverbs of manner, adverbs of place can take place in different parts of a sentence.
Adverbs of time usually placed at the beginning if the subject does not used in the sentence.

Since I was a child, my dream was to travel to Asia and learn all the other Turkish Languages such as Kyrgyz Turkish, Kazak Turkish, Tatar Turkish, Tuva Turkish) as well as to research the similarities and differences between Modern Turkish and other Turkish languages. In the past, I worked as a lecturer in the School of Foreign Languages of Turkish Education at Kyrgyzstan Turkey Manas University for 3 years. During my appointment, I have taught all levels of Modern Turkish to the students who are from different nationalities such as Americans, Russians, English, German, Kazaks, Kyrgyz, Tatars, Mongol, Tuvas, Uighur Turk. I am also very fluent in Kyrgyz Turkish and Kazak Turkish. Currently, I am living in Turkey.I believe that with my experiences and love for languages, I can surely help you to speak up.
