Usage notes[edit]

  • When auxiliary to a copula, the copula may be left out.
  • Along with only two other verbs (skulu and vilja), munu has a special past tense infinitive. It is equal to the third person plural past tense mundu. This rare form is mostly used when the verb of the main clause also is in the past tense.

Usage notes[edit]

Munu is a non-switching conjunction. When it joins two clauses or sentences, it conveys that the subject of the first clause carries over into the second. In cases where each clause has a different subject, ka is used instead.
