1 - To Be: I am, I was - you are, you were...
In Kutchi, there are 8 different pronouns to refer to yourself, other things, or other people.
'Thu' - You (informal)
'Ain' - You (polite)
'Hi' - He/she/this
'Hu' - He/She/that
'Paa' - We (informal)
'Asaan' - We (polite)
'Lokaa' - They
To form a sentence explaining 'I am _____,' the word 'Ai' must be placed at the end of the sentence.
The sentence looks like this: Pronoun + adjective + ai
Au thikh ai - I am fine
Thu karaab ai - You are bad
Hi fukho ai - This is a bag
Hu chakli ai - That is a bird
The verb 'ai' behaves very irregularly, regarding tenses.
Past tense - 'Vaa'
Present tense - 'ai'
Future tense - 'Hunaa'
So to say something is, was, or will be, the word 'ai' must be replaced with either 'vaa' or 'hunaa.'
Au saaro vo - I was good
Hu karaab huno - That will be bad
Hu chakli vi? - Was that a bird?
