    Etmek ve dilemek fiili birbirinden iki farkli fiildir.

    Dilemek = to say that you hope someone will be lucky/successful, etc

    - Sizden ozur dilerim.
    - Iyi aksamlar diliyorum.
    - Basarilar dilerim.

    Etmek = do / make

    Rica etmek, yardim etmek, telefon etmek, seyahat etmek.

    There is not a rule. They are pattern. Because theese words come from Arabic to Turkish :)
