EtymologyEdit

From Middle Dutch ette (judge), from Old Dutch *atto, from Proto-Germanic *attô (father), from Proto-Indo-European *átta. In either the Old Dutch part of the word's history, the word shifted in meaning from "father" to "judge", analogous to how in Latin the word patres (fathers) took the additional meaning "senators".

Cognate with Old High German atto (Middle High German atte, Alemannic German Ätti).

VerbEdit

ette

  1. The second-person plural form of the negation verb. The English translations include do not/don’t and not (with auxiliary verbs and be).

Usage notesEdit

  • The negative verb is used with the connegative form of the main verb. That form is identical to the second-person singular imperative in the indicative present. The potential mood connegative ends in the marker for the mood, -ne-, and the conditional mood connegative ends in the marker for the mood, -isi-. In the indicative past, conditional past and potential past, the active past participle plural (ending -eet) is used — if addressing politely or formally one person, the active past participle singular (ending -ut/-yt) is used. The connegative form of the main verb is always used without the personal suffix.

ConjugationEdit

  • The negation verb has no infinitive form.
  • Indicative, conditional and potential moods use the indicative forms (stem e-), for which the verb is conjugated only in person.
  • In the imperative mood the negation verb has the stem äl-.
  • An archaic optative mood exists and is used mainly in poetry.
