Some useful sentences... for dummies
« on: September 07, 2012, 08:59:56 pm »
I turned on my crockpot (my brain, of course  ;D) to make some sentences. Here are they:

Help request

Q: Srung ngaru srak? - Do you want (any) help? Want some/any help?
A: Srane, new srungit oeru. - Yes, I want help.

Q: Srung si oeru, rutxe. - Help me, please.
A: Nìprrte' - Yes OR With pleasure.

Q: srung ngaru srak? - Do you want (any) help? Want some/any help?
A: Srane, new srungit oeru. - Yes, I want help.
Very shortened form of tsun oe ngaru srung sivi srak? or kin ngal srungit srak? or new ngal srungit srak? … there are many ways to kelutral ;)
The answer though is srane, new srungit oel. or new oel futa nga srung sivi oer ‘I want you to help me’
I’m not sure about the topic … could be.


Q: Srung oeru, rutxe. - Help me, please.
A: Nìprrte - Yes OR With pleasure.
I’m also for the srung si oer, rutxe … it’s still short enough since most people seem to prefer succinct sentences…
Don’t forget the apostrophe in nìprrte’

 If I am under a Jeep wrestling with a transmission, and oeya muntatxe asks me "Srung ngaru srak", I am NOT going to to start a conversation, I will shorten the answer further to just "SRANE". We both understand what I mean.

It's an alternative version.

Did you know that ''s'il vous plaît'' or ''please'' means "if it pleases to you"? So, nìprrte' is always correct for an answer!
