Solombala English edit

Etymology edit

Inherited from English yes.

Perhaps Ingvild Broch (1996) made a mistake in reading and the original source was Йезъ! (Jjez!), not Уезъ! (Ujez!). Аs happened with ту (tu, two) where Broch mistakenly took for мы (my).

Particle edit

уезъ (ujez)

  1. yes

      Oh! Yes! Very good much.
