To indicate the continuity of action we use “To keep doing” form of sentence.
e.g I keep trying evein if I fail.
He kept speaking until all slept.
Do not stop, keep doing
In Marathi sentence formation is “-
Doer of action
verb+ त (t)
form of “राहणे” (rAhaNe) as per subject and tense
Like few exceptions the verb “राह” changes to “राहि” before creating its simple past tense.
Below example will clarify concept :-
I keep speaking :- मी बोलत राहतो (mI bolat rAhato )
I kept speaking :- मी बोलत राहिलो (mI bolat rAhilo)
I will keep speaking :- मी बोलत राहीन (mI bolat rAhIn)
You keep speaking :- तू बोलत राहतोस (tU bolat rAhatos )
You kept speaking :- तू बोलत राहिलास (tU bolat rAhilAs )
You will keep speaking :- तू बोलत राहशील (tU bolat rAhashIl )
