I am reading Euronews and came across what is for me a new grammar construction...the word "kaldığı" which I assume is a form of kalmak. Can someone explain its use in the following sentence?


Gece boyunca süren görüşmeler sonucunda maliye bakanlarının mutabık kaldığı paket, Güney Kıbrıs'ın 17 milyar Euroluk beklentilerinin altında kaldı.

    Hi,
    I am reading Euronews and came across what is for me a new grammar construction...the word "kaldığı" which I assume is a form of kalmak. Can someone explain its use in the following sentence?
    -dık is a relative clause suffix. I hope the link still works, see p. 85 and p. 380.

    -DIK and -(y)AcAK form all three types of subordinate clause. .. -DIK: This suffix usually expresses present or past time. It forms:
    (ii) Participles: göreme-diğ-im (film) ‘(the film) that I was not able to see’, öpüş-tüğ-ü (kız) ‘(the girl) whom s/he has kissed/is kissing’ (see 25.1.1.2).

    Vroot + dık + possessive suffix
    Note that k at the end of the suffix becomes ğ, except 3rd person plural.

    :)

    Indeed. "Kaldığı" is "kal-" turned gerundial. "Maliye bakanlarının mutabık kaldığı" means "upon which the ministers of finance agreed".
