Introduction to Lithuanian: 27

Let’s go back to the a-ending-verbs. Here is another one:

Lithuanian for he works is jis dirba.

If you spell dirba backwards you get a bird. Imagine a bird working to remember that works is dirba.

Trying using this new word:

  1. Remember that "ten" is usually in the middle.
  2. The order in this sentence would be "what you there work?"
  3. "And" is "ir", right?
  4. "Where" is "kur", and you just ask "where bank?"
  5. Simply "there". Not extremely polite, but good enough.
  6. Literally this would be: "hi. where park? there?"
  7. The word for "not" is "ne". While "ne" does join verbs (becoming "neturėti"), it does NOT join nouns, thus you will be saying literally "it not park".
  8. The word order in this one is "from where you?"
  9. Remember to change the ending of "Amerika".
  10. Remember the words "dirba" and "studijuoja", and work out their "tu" form through following the ultimate rule. Also, no need to repeat the "tu".
  11. You remember that "and" is "ir", right?
  12. It's "daktaras" (some vowel change)!
  13. Remember that "I have to" is "turiu".
  14. Still remember the word "dirba"? Also remember that "ne" goes together with verbs.
