ŝati (v) - from German schätzen, no relation to english shit


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/tu.8zPhLD72zzoZN

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

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hawke666

Huh, I assumed it was from the same root as "sated" or "satisfied" (Apparently Latin satis or Old English sadian).

We all know what you're thinking... No need to say it.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Oscypex

I actually thought of Satan.

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.

I mean, who doesn't?

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...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NerdNae

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.

This can't be an accident.

A Swedish tongue twister?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hjulle

Yes, on the same theme as this one. Different variants of the sounds "Ŝ" and "ĉ".


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/CScubing

Damm right she SHOULD.

I also love chocolate.

My brain instantly thought cxokoladon had to be cocaine


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vikaso1

how should I say "she likes a chocolate"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AANickFan

"Ŝi ŝatas ĉokoladon."


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MrVulcan

I keep hearing something like "eh" between "sxatas" and "cxokoladon." Anyone else?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DavisHerre

Is there a difference between s and c?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/petporcupine

Yes, see comment by vicc_walker on this page.
s = s
c = ts
sx = sh
cx = ch


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Nuvatak
