    Hi,

    Two verbs I confuse: iletmek vs. ilerletmek

    Please could you explain the most basic differences between them?

    Best,

    Simon

    iletmek=to convey ; to conduct (electricity, energy, a flow of heat, water etc.) from a point to another; to make something with something.
    ileriletmek >>ilerletmek=to advance; to improve; to make something gone forward/advanced;

    What is the root of iletmek?

    I guess it consists of two parts (?);

    ile - etmek ?

    Many thanks - so do we use iletmek for forwarding a letter to the addressee when it arrives at the wrong address?

    Yes ! Either iletmek or ulaştırmak may quitely fit there. Surprisingly both of them may be of same root but I'm not sure.

    For forwarding a letter to a new addressee, I would explicitly say "yeni/düzeltilen adrese yollamak/iletmek/ulaştırmak".
