Occidental for English Speakers: Lesson 11

The word for let’s is lass

Have you heard of the French economic term "laissez-faire"? In Occidental it would be "lass far" (let do).

The English "let’s" is a contraction of "let" + "us". So we need to learn that too.

The word for us is nos

"Lass nos" is a common way to introduce an idea for something to do. Add on the infinitive of a verb, and you get a solid plan!
