You may notice that the past tense is almost like adding a "-d" in English for the past tense. Similar sound, right?

The word for with is con

Think of conjunction.

The word for you as in with you or to you is te

In English, we just use "you" for both "you eat" and "I eat with you".

In Occidental, we use "tu" for "you eat" and te for "I eat with you".

(Remember your "thou"s and "thee"s from Shakespeare? It’s the same thing)
