Occidental for English Speakers: Lesson 2

If you want to connect two phrases together in English, we use the word "that". This is called a conjunction.

The word for that is que

Pronounced like "kweh".

Let’s connect some phrases from the last lesson!

?It is true that you are eating|It es ver que tu manja

Now, let’s turn this into a question by changing the word order a bit.

?Is it true that you are eating|Es it ver que tu manja

The phrase "is it true that ___" is so common in Occidental, that it has a shortcut!

Is it true that is Esque

You can also think of this word as a simple way to ask a question.

"Esque insert question phrase"

Ask that question again with this shortcut.

?Are you eating|Esque tu manja

The word for yes is yes

The word for no is no

You read that correctly :)

?Yes, I am eating|Yes, yo manja

The word for not is ne

To negate a verb in Occidental, just put "not" in front of it.

?No, I am not eating|No, yo ne manja
