1.You can both say eve geleli or eve döneli, geleli is commonThanks.
I understand that I do not need to be clear that it is my home/house.
I will come to understand the rest...
It is not long since I came home.
1. In English, the meaning is to come back, to return home. That is why I chose eve dönmek
So it is ok also in Turkish to use 'eve gelmek'
İs that the common usage?
2. İt is not long.
For this we do need to include the reference to time while in English it is implied. but
uzun zaman = long time
the 'İt is' needs to be specified or you sound like Jane & Tarzan.
uzun zaman olmak - to be a long time
Then the negative is formed with the verb. İt is past tense because the time has passed, even though it was not much time.
uzun zaman olmadı
İs that correct understanding?
Would one use that sentence in Turkish?
İn Turkey, what would you say when you have been away, then back in your home about 5 minutes?
Thanks in advance
