Introduction to Lithuanian: 28

Let’s learn hi and thanks, because these words stand out.

The informal Lithuanian word hi is labas.

This word used to mean good in older Lithuanian, but it just means hi now.

The way Lithuanians thank each other is very similar to sneezing:

Then Lithuanian for thank you is ačiū.

That's great. Let's say:

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