- In the sense of “divorce”, the past tense often takes the construction is geskei rather than het geskei. Technically, the former can be read as a regular past tense of the passive voice, but the understanding is usually active:
- My ouers is geskei toe ek vyf jaar oud was. — “My parents divorced when I was five years old.”
- The above construction refers to the past and is clearly verbal. Beyond this, geskei can also be an adjective in a phrase like the following:
- My ouers is al lank geskei. — “My parents have long been divorced.”
