Part 3 – Key Takeaways:

  • We can use ‘gé’ to indicate possessive form of any person or animal. In future episodes, when we want to say words like “the man’s”; “the dog’s”; etc. we’ll be also using ‘gé’
  • The possessive “my” is  ‘ma∙gé’  (and not ma∙mȧ∙gé)
  • In Sinhala, the equivalent expressions for “are”, “am”, and “is” are not used very often

 

Now wasn’t that a convenient little recap? :)
