What do you do for Estne when it is PLural?

do you do the same thing or not?

September 5, 2019



Do you mean when asking a question? The -ne suffix is general.

Sumne? = am I?
Esne? = are you?
Estne? = is he/she/it?
Estisne? = are you all?
Suntne? = are they?

Of course, this is only for use when a question word (ubi, quando, quid, quis, quomodo, etc.) isn't present (the -ne ending turns a statement into a yes/no question). :)

It was missed, but the point was made. :)

Just adding to ARCANA_MVSA's answer: you can also use it with other verbs:

Habitasne? = do you live?
Studentne? = do they study?
Legimusne? = do we read?
