Lesson 3 - yakmichista

Asking questions, Introducing one's self

This lesson will introduce more basic phrases, specifically ones that ask questions about the listener or other things. At the end of this lesson, one will be able to give a short, basic introduction of one's self in Eurasian.

Asking questions

In Eurasian, questions should end with rising intonation, much like in English. This is done for the speaker to open the question to being answered by the listener.

Below is shown a few more phrases that are questions. Like before, they vary depending on the gender of either the speaker or the listener. If the subject is the speaker, then the phrase must agree with the speaker, and if the subject is the listener, then the phrase must agree with the listener.

In the following table, the subject is the listener.

Masucline form Feminine form Meaning
okom le duteng tjel? okja te duteng tjel? What is your name?
ninai dom najiyonazhdamo okung? ninai dom najetyonazhdamo okeng? Where are you from?
ninai zjetiyondamo okung? ninai zjetetyondamo okeng? Where do you live?
okung teotsomja hapakom tajiyon? okeng teotsomja hapakim tajetyon? What kind of Hapa are you?

Answering questions

The following table shows phrases that answers the questions asked above. Unlike the above questions, the subject of these answers is the speaker, and thus should agree with the gender of the speaker.
