Adjectives

In Turkish the adjective comes before the noun, just as in English.

güzel kız - pretty girl
sıcak su - hot water
kara kedi - black cat


When saying something like "He is a hardworking student," or "This is a very sweet cake", Turkish people use the form "___ bir ___".

Bu çok tatlı bir kek. - This is a very sweet cake.
O çalışkan bir öğrenci - He is a hardworking student.
O güzel bir kız - She is a pretty girl.
