oo (stative, irregular)

  1. to be (something)

Usage notes[edit]

  • It replaces the use of ya in sentences where a Class II subject marker cannot be used. It never takes any subject markers.
  • It cannot be used alone and must always be used with verb endings such as -tok, -taam, -a'chi, etc.
  • For the future tense, a'chi can be used as a standalone word rather than a suffix completely replacing the use of a verb and having the meaning "will be". Similarly, a'ni, "might be" could possibly work in a similar fashion, replacing the presence of an explicit verb as well, although it is not normally used in sentences expressing being something.
  • The prefix hoo- is never used with any forms of the verb "to be" (ya, oo, a'chi).
  • To ask questions such as "Is it a/an....", see the entries for the noun suffixes -to̠ (used after consonants) and -hto̠ (used after vowels).
