Remember Environment Pronouns...?

    There appears to be an environment verb in Turkish, both normal and
negative: var and yok (respectively).  It's used for such things as "to
have": car-my var, my car exists, I have a car.  (With "yok" it'd be "I don't
have a car".)  They're also used for the "there is/isn't" deal.  And also
used for existence, so it'd be used in the sentence, "The evidence for my
client doesn't exist" (or "yok" would).  Very useful.  I wish I hadn't seen
it, else I'd use it...
