The verb "To Be" and equational sentences


First of all, there is no verb "to be" in Ozen language. Instead, a set of particles take the place and work alike. Thence, let's know them.

Factual Particles
  • da (imperfect/no-past)
  • mu (negative imperfect)
  • deri (perfect/past)
  • mu deri (negative perfect)
There are also darah (affirmative) and murah (negative), both refer explicitly to the future, and also da nai and deri nai as reinforced negative forms.

Desiderative Particles
  • na (imperfect/no-past)
  • mu na (negative imperfect)
  • neri (perfect/past)
  • mu neri (negative perfect)
There are also narah (affirmative) and mu narah (negative), both refer explicitly to desires in the future.

Example sentences

Ke da kurum  "this is a car."
He deri Salamanca-no l Guberno Palacium  "that was the Palace of the Government of Salamanca."
Fausto mu deri Pancho Villa-no alkaide  "Fausto was not the mayor of Pancho Villa."
Alissa deri mesterem  "Alissa was my teacher."
Erentošni London-ni deri Ricardus  "Ricardus was in London in the past year."

That's all for today.
