Dalcurian verb to do
The verb maqur-to do has very little usage in Dalcurian. It is mainly used in interrogative questions:
- Vitrö? maquria mæ. What's he doing? lit: What are doing you?
- Binä maquriax éanöÞa. I'm not doing anything. lit: I'm doing not anything.
It is not classed as an auxilliary verb, and never used to be emphatic:
- Don't you like music? Yes, I DO like music!
In Dalcurian, asking questions equivalent to the above example, one simply uses the main verb (very much as in German). If the response is to be emphatic, then use the intensifier esti:
- Diö iqurax löræasáÞ, nál? Néfaracte, binä iqur löræasáÞ esti!
