Malekzemple: La germana xD
Sed cxiu lingvo estas amuza :D
Mi trovas antikva norne tre amuza aux la klingona lingvo mi ne scias kio estas pli.
Could someone explain the difference between iam, foje and kelkfoje? They're confusing me a lot.
As far as I can tell, the differences involve number:
Iam means once, or sometime; at some unspecified (single) time.
Foje can mean once or sometimes; it's the adverbial form of fojo which means occasion or (a) time, so you can thing of foje as meaning "at a time" or "occasionally"
Kelka means some, so kelkfoje (or kelkafoje, though I see it's frowned on for an excess of syllables) means sometimes or occasionally. :)
Surfing round, I see kelkfoje used as "now and then," "now and again."
All are adverbs.
could someone tell me the difference between: "lerni lingvon foje estas facilA" and "lerni lingvon foje estas facilE" ?
The lesson notes mention that, "After estas, when there is no subject of the sentence, use an adverb, not an adjective." I am not sure the grammatical reasoning behind that rule, though.
Infinitives and indirect speech are described with -e. Just the way it is.
Esperanto doesn't have many just-because rules, but this is one of them.
Here's my theory. ESTI is a verb, which is not quite equal to the English word BE. To describe a verb, we use adverbs. The sentence can be understood like that: how does something(lerni lingvo foje) exist(esti)? It(lerni lingvo foje) exists(estas) easily(facile).
Why wouldnt that reasoning apply in other cases? Why does "esti" not get modified when there is a personal subject?
facile! because it's an adverb "easy/easily" modifying the verb "lerni"
