"Oni diras, ke Esperanto estas facila lingvo."

Translation:One says that Esperanto is an easy language.

May 29, 2015



Esperanto estas tre facila, ĉu ne?

June 8, 2015


Mas o mano. I suppose it takes a little to get use with, with the accusatives.

June 24, 2015


Hear hear! ...'s a lingot :)

September 19, 2015


Dankon! Mia amiko!

September 28, 2015


jes esperanto estas tre falicila

September 28, 2018


Esperanto estas malfacila, sed Esperanto estas pli facila ol la hispanan, la germanan, etc.

No language is EASY. Esperanto may be more "regular" but that does not make it EASY.

When are you supposed to use a comma with a subordinate clause?

May 29, 2015


Always, before "ke" ;-)

May 29, 2015


In English, that comma would be incorrect; also you optimize out "that" in that context (Strunk pushed for removing useless words). I guess the grammar is different in Esperanto.

In English, you'd have a sentence: "He says that Esperanto is easy." In this context, "He says Esepranto is easy" is equally correct and better form (it's more compact, thus more forceful: it stays more coherent in the listener's mind).

In Esperanto, the comma before "ke" is required, or simply convention? Is it correct to simply omit "ke"; and, if so, do you still need the comma? "Oni diras Esperanto estas facil lingvo" is correct or no?

I see you are learning German. The rule is the same. Before "dass", you use a comma. :)

This will be strange for me, since in Portuguese you never put a comma in subordinative clauses.

I tried "It is said that Esperanto is an easy language" and it was accepted.

June 23, 2015


chu vi pensas same kiel?

June 9, 2015


Would "One could say" also be correct for "Oni diras"? If no, why not?

June 10, 2015


Not exactly, since "could" is adding that ~indeterminate connotation to the verb "say". Compare "Oni" with "Man" in German.

I find Esperanto harder to grasp than Norwegian, surprisingly.

September 13, 2015


Esperanto would be easier if it had an indefinite article.

It sounds like the computer voice is not pronouncing both the "n" and "g" but is substituting a back n [ŋ] like we do in English in words such as "singer".

Am i the only one thinking that the word "Ke" doesnt seem like Esperantos usual style?

November 17, 2018


How are we supposed to distinguish between Tio and Ke? Can they just be used interchangeablly?

January 8, 2019


I read the notes, but I'm still confused on the grammatical use of "Oni". Does it mean "they"? or the number one?

August 9, 2015


Esperanto oni is a non-specified / generic personal pronoun. In English it would in most cases probably be translated as a non-specific "one", "you", "they".

English Wiktionary, on the Esperanto pronoun "one".
English Wiktionary, on the English pronoun "one".

Considering you've recently leveled up to 7 in Esperanto, I guess you've already learned that the number "one" (i.e. 1) is called unu in Esperanto, but I'm adding this reply in case someone else has got the same question later on.

Why not a simple language?

September 8, 2015


Why is Esperanto the only language that is capitalized?

April 7, 2016


To distinguish between esperanto (one who hopes) and Esperanto (Esperanto - the language) the latter has an initial uppercase-"e".

The -ant- part is the present active participle (compare English's "~ing"; (explanation borrowed from Lernu! (lernu.net)), and esper'o means hope.

(Interesting fact: Originally, the language was called "Lingvo internacia" (or Internacia lingvo), i.e. "International language.)

Can't we translate "oni" as "we" as in a general sense ?

March 27, 2017


Fkng "AN" Thank you! =_=

June 25, 2017


Jes .. La Esperanto estas lingvo tres facila kaj tre interesa , ankaŭ tres grava ĉu ne?

February 17, 2018


"Someone says that Esperanto is an easy language" should be a valid solution
