lesson continuation
combinations and simplicity

in papiamentu, you can combine and shorten words like you would do in english.
example: "i am tired" can also be written "i'm tired"

in papiamentu, the pronoun can be combined with the past tense marker.

"mi a traha" becomes "ma traha"

i worked = mi a traha - ma traha
you worked = bo a traha - ba traha
he,she,it worked = e a traha - *ela traha

*in "e" you would add an l for this combination.

(this combination does not apply to "nos" or "boso")

Reading this really makes me realize how different Curacao & Bonaire Papiamentu is fron Aruban Papiamento.

Toksave Maybe u should include some articles from the Aruban News Paper Diario. It is the most read news paper in Aruba and is also sold in Curacao. The structure is the same but the way of writing the words are different and each island has their own set of words used in daily speech.

Looking forward to seeing it. :D

Well they could be. But the way this generation is now there is no way that kind of thing could happen unless some drastic change is made.

Hahahahaha, this is very funny.

Anyway, to be serious Papiamentu is spoken in the Netherland Antilles (Coracao and Aruba?), some little islands in the southern Caribbean sea, north of Colombia and Venezuela.. I think :?

Yes thats right Aruba, Curacao and Bonaire. I'm from Aruba. About a total of half a million people around the world speak papiamento, so thats very little. Its a miracle the language still exists with all the outside influences. :roll:

Ok, here's my stab at a translation:

The Aurora Bridge in Seattle has become hazardous to the mental health of office personnel working in the area, who keep seeing with horror suicides committed by jumping off the bridge. Over the last ten years, a total of 39 people threw themselves to their death from the 47 meter high Aurora bridge. Eight of these suicides took place in 2006. Psychological counselors are often brought in to help office workers deal with the shock of seeing the suicide leap or blood-covered bodies.

Best regards,
Michael
