Suntne - 'Are there' (plural)

Estne - 'Is there' (singular)

Suntne viri in foro? - Are there men in the forum?

Estne vir in foro? - Is there a man in the forum?

'ne' on its own has a whole different meaning, often translated as good old 'lest' in English. I don't think that taught is in the course yet.
