They are simply long A, long E, etc. (ā, ē, ī, ō, ū). Nor is there any uncertainty with respect to the six mutes B, C, D, G, P, T. Their names are bē, cē, dē, gē, pē, tē (each with a long E). Or about H, K, and Q: they are hā, kā, kū—each, again, with a long vowel sound."

VerbEdit

ge (present ger, preterite gav, supine gett, imperative ge)

  1. to give
    Synonym: giva (dated)
    • 1541, Gustav Vasa Bible, Book of Matthew, 25:42
      Ty iagh war hungrogh / och j gåffuen migh icke äta. Jagh war torstigh / och j gåffuen migh icke dricka.
      (pre-1906 spelling) Ty jag var hungrig, och I gåfven mig icke äta; jag var törstig, och I gåfven mig icke dricka.
      For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink.

Usage notesEdit

  • The older full conjugation (giva, giver) is complete with present and past participles. The short conjugation (ge, ger) does not provide acceptable forms for participles (*geende, *gedd), but is now the preferred and dominating choice for other cases (ge, ger, gett).
