Hello everyone, I'm teaching myself some Turkish and I'm having some troubles trying to understand where should I stress words. I've already looked through this forum and I understood that stress is generally on the last vowel except for some patterns. But what I really wonder is where should I put the stress in inflected words. In words stressed on the last syllable, does the stress stay on the last syllable (which is now the declension suffix itself)? E.G.: elMA > elmaYA, I presume? But what about other words? LoKANta > loKANtaya or lokantaYA? And what about the possessive suffix -si in compounds? This one is my biggest dilemma! E.G.: where is the stress in "Galata KULESİ" or "Babamın ARABASI"? I know stress is not important in Turkish phonology, but I'd like to have a clue where to emphasize words, in order to be understood at least! Plus my book is not helpful at all, it even says that I should pronounce "konuŞUyor" instead of "konuşuYOR". Size çok teşekkürler, hope my questions are not too silly!
