Introduction to Sambahsa:
Lesson 50

By mundialecter

In Sambahsa, the English expression "used to + verb" is rendered by a (mostly hyphenated) prefix called "augment" : ee-, 'eə, put before the verb conjugated in the present tense.

New words :

"To teach" = doc, dok, turns to dots- before "e, i".

"temple" = temple, 'templə

"everyday" = cadadien, kada'djen.

Translate into Sambahsa : "They used to teach every day in the temple", without the personal pronoun, but the long conjugational ending.

They used to teach everyday in the temple.

Answer: Ee-docent cadadien in id temple.
