To Do / Make in Turkish

The verbs yapmak and etmek both mean “to do / to make” in English. While yapmak is used more as a stand-alone verb, etmek has many uses as an auxiliary verb. As noted earlier, the verb etmek goes through a consonant mutation: t turns into d when conjugated.

yapıyorum  yapıyoruz 
yapıyorsun  yapıyorsunuz 
yapıyor  yapıyorlar 
ediyorum  ediyoruz 
ediyorsun  ediyorsunuz 
ediyor  ediyorlar
