Friends, let us move a step ahead towards in learning sentence formation in Marathi, today. We will talk about verbs in Marathi.

In English some verbs are  :- to go; to come; to speak; to sit; to eat etc.

In Marathi some verbs are येणे(yeNe), जाणे(jANe), बोलणे (bolaNe), बसणे(basaNe), खाणे(khaaNe) etc.

 

While using verb in English sentence we strip “to” out of it. “To  come” is used in sentence as “I come” etc. 

Same way in Marathi ending णे (Ne) is stripped in sentence.

 

Like in English, Just saying the verb is asking someone to do that action.

When you say “Come !” you are asking someone to come. Same way in Marathi saying “ये(ye)” is asking someone to come.

 

So by knowing the verbs you can easily request someone.
