Implicit "to be" in first module
Hi! I noticed that in the sentence "Mama ta tato tam," it means mom and dad ARE there. Where does the "are" come from? Is it part of the word "tam" and is there a second word to just express "there" without the implicit "is/are"?
Ukrainian and the East Slavic languages rarely use "to be". If there's no verb, but one subject and one object, to be is implied. In past tense, though, you usually have to use it. бу́ти is the infinitive.
