Does anyone know the difference between 'as' and 'is' at the end the the verb?


Here the -as indicates a singular (he praises: rijas) whereas -is indicates a plural (they praise: rijis).

In my opinion a good number of verbs (but not all) encountered on the course seem to follow this or something close to it.

I think the verb to praise / rijagon is as follows in the present tense:

  • rijan I praise
  • rijā you praise (singular)
  • rijas he/she/it praises
  • riji we praise
  • rijāt you praise (plural)
  • rijis they praise


Shouldn't it be "for the girl" ?
