6 - Adding Context II: To want, to need, to be like
To Want to Do Something
To express a desire to perform a specific verb, replace the infinitive ending 'an' with 'noai.' Also note, when using 'noai' to express a desire, the noun with the desire must be regarded in oblique, because the desire is felt by the noun (unlike in English, where the noun desires the target; in this case, the verb).
'Naaran' - Naarnoai
'Mukhe naarnoai - I want to see
'Achan' - Achnoai
Thukhe achnoai - You want to come
'Rakhan' - Rakhnoai
Mukhe hithe rakhnoai - I want to put it here
To Need (to Do) Something
To express a need, the word 'jeru' is used. The structure is as follows:
Oblique pronoun + needed object (or infinitive verb) + jaa jeru ai. Literally: I feel the need of.
Mukhe naaran ji jeru ai - I need to see
Inkhe paani ji jeru ai - She needs water
"Like" or "As"
Noun 1 (that resembles noun 2) + noun 2 + jeisa/maafak ai
Saara Raani jeisa ai - Saara is like Raani
Munjo <computer> thojo maafak ai - My computer is like yoursPrevious Lesson
