Introduction to Sambahsa-2: Lesson 13
In Sambahsa, the English expression "used to + verb" is rendered by a (mostly hyphenated) prefix called "augment" : ee-, ’eə, put before the verb conjugated in the present tense.
New words :
"To teach" = doc, dok, turns to dots- before "e, i".
"temple" = temple, ’templə
"everyday" = cadadien, kada’djen.
Translate into Sambahsa : "They used to teach every day in the temple", without the personal pronoun, but the long conjugational ending.
