AUA – Day 4

On the 4th day, we learned more adjective words and asking questions using “chây máy kh?” (yes/no questions). We reviewed the previous lesson asking: do you know… and this time we change the person using place.

New words we learned on day 4 are

  • places :
    • bâan : home
    • rooÅ‹rɛɛm : hotel
    • dtùk : building
    • hɔɔŋ : room
    • hɔɔŋ-náam : lavatory, toilet
    • hɔɔŋ-khrua : kitchen
    • hɔɔŋ-kinkhâaw : dining room
    • hɔɔŋ-samùt : library
    • hɔɔŋ-naÅ‹sÇ”u : study room
    • hɔɔŋ-thamÅ‹aan : working room
    • hɔɔŋ-naÅ‹ lên : living room
    • hɔɔŋ-nɔɔn : bed room

  • adjectives :
    • yen : cold
    • rɔ́ɔn : hot
    • yày : big
    • lék : small
  • others:
    • khìt wâa : think
    • tɛɛ̀ : but
    • lɛ́ : and
    • jiÅ‹ jiÅ‹ ləə : really ?

So far, we learned these form of questions using adjectives and name of places:

    • Q : S + verb + person / place + máy kh ?
    • A1: S + verb + kh
    • A2: mây + verb + kh
    • Ex : Khun rúu càk rooÅ‹rɛɛm Holiday Inn máy kh? (Do you know Holiday Inn hotel?)
    • Q: Person / place + adjective + máy kh ?
    • Ex : RooÅ‹rɛɛm Holiday Inn sÇ”uÅ‹ máy kh? (Do you think Holiday Inn hotel is tall?)
    • Q: Person / place + adjective + chây máy kh ?
    • A1: chây kh (yes it is)
    • A2: mây chây kh (no it is not)
    • Ex : RooÅ‹rɛɛm Holiday Inn sÇ”uÅ‹ chây máy kh? (Holiday Inn hotel is tall, isn’t it?
