Would the audio be spelled like,"Bărbatul n-bea suc"? Or does that not make sense in Romanian?
The difference is the person’s ending. Unlike english which has almost the same form for most of the tense (present or any other), romanian has its conjugation a little bit different.
A bea (to drink) at present tense is conjugated like this: Eu beau = I drink, Tu bei = You drink (singular), El (He) / Ea (She) bea (drinks), Noi bem (We drink), Voi beți (You drink, plural) and Ei (Masculine form of They) / Ele (feminine form of they) beau (drink). If there are more questions you want me to answer, don’t be shy.
