Ah, thank you, I wondered where it came from. Here is what I found about it: http://dictionary.reverso.net/german-english/schatzen
ŝati = to appreciate or like
not to be confused with
sati = to be full or have enough
Huh, I assumed it was from the same root as "sated" or "satisfied" (Apparently Latin satis or Old English sadian).
Ŝi ŝatas kaj fartas? I should have learned this language a long time ago... Having tons of fun!
It will take me a while before I can see those words and not laugh to myself.
About the pronunciation: Does 'Ŝ' sound like s in "sugar" and 'Ĉ' like in ch in chocolate? At least I'm hearing it, I'm not sure...
yes. there's a comprehensive list underneath the first lesson group, at least as of February 2018. i kn ow you've probably figured it out by now but i'm leaving it here for future people with the same question.
Sjuttiosju sjösjuka sjömän sköttes av sju sköna sjuksköterskor på skeppet Shanghai!
Yes, on the same theme as this one. Different variants of the sounds "Ŝ" and "ĉ".
Yes, see comment by vicc_walker on this page.
s = s
c = ts
sx = sh
cx = ch
It gets harder.
EDIT: I don't know what the purpose of this comment was, or what I even meant.
