Word of the Day

Yesterday we looked at colors. We will continue to look at colors but in a slightly different way. All colors are adjectives. We will look at ways to convert the adjectives into verbs.

taktakli =red

ni taktakli lacas gi. I have a red house.

Surprisingly, this change takes place with a suffix(heavy sarcasm there).

The suffix is: -tgi.

From the repeating adjective taktakli, we take the repeating part (tak) and add this suffix to it. We get: taktgi.

gos taktgi. The tree became red.

This suffix is translated as: turned red or became red or transformed to red. It suggests that it was another color before the transformation.

Try it a few times and make some sentences with it.
