Words of encouragement

Postby lyric » 2007-06-06, 11:17

Hello Basque speakers,

Your help is needed to complete the list of words of encouragement: http://home.unilang.org/wiki3/index.php ... ouragement

i.e. words you say to yourself or others when trying to accomplish a hard task,
like for example learning a new language :wink:.

Examples: "You can make it.", "Go-ahead! ", "Go!"

How do you say in Basque?

Allez, let's go :D,

Hi!

The most usuals could be the following:

aurrera!
eutsi gogor!
eutsi goiari!
Tira! Aupa! Benga!

And the less usual ones..
Jo ta ke! Jo ta fuego!


Hope it helped,
Daniel
