I Not Conjugate, I Not

| Comments

Becca doesn’t quite have all her verb conjugation and helper words down yet. In fact, sometimes, she just bails on conjugation altogether. Pretty understandable, as Thai language has no verb conjugation by subject and only very simple and consistent conjugation by past/future, the equivalent of adding “-ed” for the past tense and “will -” for the future tense.

As an example, this morning Becca commented that she had scraped her arm yesterday playing at a neighbor’s house. Wanting to convey how brave she was, Becca added: “I not cry, I not.”

Very cute.
