Linking Gerunds in Turkish

Linking Gerunds are used to connect two elements inside a sentence. Most of the time they are used to connect two actions that happen one after the other. We use the ‘-ip/-ıp/-up/-üp’ suffix after the verb root to make a linking gerund. When translated into English, the conjugation ‘and’ is used.


Let’s see some examples:

  • Araba çocuğa vurup kaçtı.

(The car hit the child and escaped.)


  • Ödevimi teslim edip eve döndüm.

(I’m going to turn in my homework and return home).


  • Sadece bir arkadaşa bakıp çıkacağım.

(I’m just going to look for a friend and exit.)
