At this point, i understood "ymolchi" to mean "to wash". Using translation services online, i gather that "ymolchi" translates to "bathroom", correct?
I'm not sure that "golchi" has been taught, yet. Is "ymolchi" only used in reference to washing one's self, while "golchi" is used when washing other things?
Yes, as you say:
- golchi, to wash (something else)
- ymolchi, to wash (oneself)
The ym- is a reflexive prefix, so the two are a bit like lavar vs. lavarse in Spanish.
Ymolchi by itself does not mean "bathroom", but an ystafell ymolchi "self-washing room" is one word for a bathroom. (As in the place where you wash yourself, not - I think - a euphemism for a room with a toilet.)
