Today we are going to begin our introduction to questions. We can make sentences and by asking a question we will begin a conversation.
Do you remember my demonstration question? ni yayna sle-a. I see the mountain.
I am going to show you why I call it a demonstration sentence. I will demonstrate how to make a Yes/No question.
ni yayna sle-a. The way to make a Yes/No question is to put the word “dal” at the beginning of the sentence.
dal ni yayna sle-a? Do I see the mountain?
When you are asking another person, the pronoun as the subject needs to be changed to: i=you.
so, ni yayna sle-a becomes: dal i yayna sle-a. Do you see the mountain.
Put it all together.
ni yayna sle-a. dal i yayna sle-a? I see the mountain. Do you see the mountain?
So, in this lesson we have learned how to make a Yes/No question.
AND we saw the value of a demonstration sentence. Everyone should have a demonstration sentence. It should be two or three words long so it can be easily remembered and used by you. It would help if the subject of the sentence is: ni.
So, all you have to do is pick a verb that calls out to you. Make a demonstration sentence and remember it.
