I'd be happy if someone me explain how it works the Vowel > Harmony. Thanks The first type is where the vowels in suffixes conform to the last vowel in the root. This can be on a front/back basis, or a rounded/unrounded one, or both. In Turkish evler "the houses", evin "of the house" front unrounded adlar "the islands", adın "of the island" back unrounded okulun "of the school" back rounded otobüsün "of the bus" front rounded Naturally, there are exceptions: foreign words like rolün "of the role" and some native ones, like the suffix -ki/kü which can't be back Osman'ınki "Osman's one" The second type is where one type of vowel is dominant, so a root with a dominant vowel can change suffixes, but a suffix with a dominant vowel can change roots. This is common in Siberia, where the dominant vowels, called hard, have retracted tongue root. In Chukchi, kojɲ- "cup" + -u "essive" = kojɲo milγ- "match" + γa-ma "comitative" = γamelγəma "with a match"
