With these word you’re able to create complex sub sentences. If you wanted to say “I like to eat” you couldn’t do it before, now you can! 🙂
You were able to say “I like the process of eating” which would translate to “Sunu oeru tìyusom”, but if you really want to say “I like to eat” you need one of these words, because it doesn’t only describe one noun but is an entire new sentence, including a new noun, verb, maybe even an adjective.
Sunu oeru fwa yom would mean “I like to eat”, or literally “I like this thing which is to eat”. Broken down it is “Sunu oeru fì’u a yom”. Same thing for all these Word.
You can also put that sub sentence in front of the fì’u, but then the futa wouldn’t work, because the a points in the wrong direction, so you’ve got to use the “normal version” the “a fì’u” Version.
Exercise 1: Please translate the following sentences:
- I know that this hunter is good
- You think that you know that I know
- Oel fpìl futa na’rìng lor lu
- Fula oel ke omum tsat oet srätx
