Etymology 2[edit]

Particle[edit]

ote

  1. Used to form tentative yes/no questions.
    Etorriko ote da?I wonder if he'll come.
Usage notes[edit]

In Basque, yes/no questions require a modal particle. The most common one is al, which introduces no additional meaning. For tentative questions, ote is used. The related particle omen indicates hearsay, but it's not used to form direct questions. All these particles are placed immediately before (auxiliary) verb forms.

Derived terms[edit]
  • oteka (doubting, in doubt)
  • otezko (doubtful)
