Occidental for English Speakers: Lesson 10
The verb for to must or to need is dever
This is a very useful word in everyday speech! You will be surprised at how often you speak about things you need / must do.
The word for we is noi
Pronounced like "noy".
Occidental will sometimes just accept a commonly understood international word without changing it very much at all.
For a silly example, let’s say we want to steal the word "rock" from the genre of "rock music".
The word for to rock is rockar
The word for the is li
Pronounced like "lee". Think of it like the old English "thee".
Remember how to form the past tense for verbs?
The word for to give is dar
Hold out your hand and motion towards yourself while you say "Da me it" (give me it).
The word for type is tip
Pronounced "teep". In English we usually say "type of something", but that’s a quirk of English. Most western languages just say "type something" and Occidental follows this usage.Next lesson >
