DeclensionEdit

  • Before consonantal endings, the stem vowel is pronounced short and the endings themselves have back vowels. In the accusative, dative, and genitive singular, the stem vowel is pronounced long and the endings accordingly take front vowels. The declension is thus irregular:
Singular: nom. yar — acc. yari — dat. yare — loc. yarda — abl. yardan — gen. yarin
Plural: nom. yarlar — acc. yarları — dat. yarlara — loc. yarlarda — abl. yarlardan — gen. yarların
