    From all dictionaries:

    Yapmak=to make / to do
    Etmek=to make / to do
    Hata yapmak=to make mistake
    Hata etmek=to make mistake

    So what would be difference between 'hata yapmak' and 'hata etmek'?

    teşekkür ederim :)

    Hata etmek isn't correct as I know. But you can use: hatayı telafi etmek, hatayı kabul etmek vs.

    Well i heard many people say 'hata ettim' in tv so i think it's also correct, but also i can hear 'hata yaptım' so i don't see big difference.Anyone can explain more about it please?

    çok teşekkür ediyorum

    Actually "hata etmek" is more correct than "hata yapmak"
  5. erdisam Junior Member

    Both are correct definetely.

    From the answers it seems that there is no difference, although logically hata yapmak should be more correct.

    Indeed, they are both correct. It should be noted, though, that hata etmek ​is outdated.
