troa (accusative singular troan, plural troaj, accusative plural troajn)

  1. too much, too many

Usage notes[edit]

  • To say "too much" or "too many" both "troa" and "tro da" can be used. There exists, however, a difference between "troa" and "tro da", though it is subtle. "Tro da" expresses a sense of collection, of belonging together somehow; something that is not the case for "troa". Consider, for example, the difference between "Tro da homoj mortis tiutage." (Too many people died that day.) and "Troaj homoj mortas pro aŭtoakcidentoj ĉiujare." (Too many people die in car accidents each year.). The first sentence expresses the notion that the people died because of the same event, whereas any such notion is absent from the second sentence.
