Usage notesEdit

  • Mostly embedded into words taking the shape in alternative forms. When it is in the form of -di/-ti, -dı/-tı, -du/-tu, and -dü/-tü which are also past tense suffixes, a differentiation in stress is noted where the past tense suffixes carry the stress but the alternative forms of idi do not, mainly because they are not originally suffixes. Past tense suffixes always follow a verb.
