(?) Question suffix
Explanation:
we can say that this is a suffix, used after verbs usually turning the sentence into a question, although it's written separated from the verb.
öyle mi?: is it?
hasta mı?: is he ill?
mavi mi?: is it blue?
doktor mu?: is he a doctor?
It takes the form "mı,mi,mu,mü" according to the vowels of the word that it follows.

hope this is enough
