Learn about Prussian grammar and derivation through Wikipedia test page on Esperanto

Wednesday, June 30, 2010

The Prussian Wikipedia test has a new page here, on Esperanto. It starts out with a typical explanation of the language, but soon gets into prefixes and suffixes, which for anyone who knows Esperanto provides a good insight into Prussian grammar. Some interesting examples:

dormi (to sleep) --> migītwei; ekdormi (to begin to sleep) --> enmigtwei
aŭdi (to hear) --> kirdītun; misaŭdi (to mishear) --> blāndewingi kirdītun
skribi (to write) --> peisātun; reskribi (to rewrite) --> preipeisātan
legi (to read) --> skaitātun; legebla (readable) --> mazīngiskas prei skaitāsnan
alta (high) --> alteco (height) --> aūktan
pordo (door) --> wartā; pordeto (small door) --> wartikā
domo (house) --> buttan; domoj (houses) --> butāi; domojn (houses + acc.) --> buttans
estu (be!) --> seī!
