Street Conversation VIII

The last conversation was so good, that I decided to focus on feelings this week as well. I was not disappointed.

 

Sergiu: Ce e cu tine?

What’s wrong with you?

Girl: Hmmm, *îs nervoasă.

Hmmm, I’m angry.

Sergiu: Serios, de ce?

Really, why?

Girl: M-au concediat şeful.

The boss fired me. (Small error, she should have said “M-a concediat şeful.”)

*Regional version of ‘sunt’.

Grammar VIII

Verbs

 

Today we will learn some basic verbs that will help you show off what you can or can not do (or say)

SpunI say
SpuiYou say
SpuneHe, she says
SpunemWe say
SpunețiYou say
SpunThey say

 

PotI can
PoțiYou can
PoateHe, she can
PutemWe can
PutețiYou can
PotThey can

The first verbs are always the hardest, especially since the most common ones are irregular. Later we will see that the verbs are not going to be so crazy.

Adjectives

One exception that you will see in a few adjectives is the change from -ist to -iști.

For example the masculine plural form of Trist is Triști. Adjectives ending in -ist will behave like this.
