Primary and modal auxiliary verbs in Eilauners

Written by Dyami Millarson

Auxiliary verbs are notably the most important verbs to know in Eilauners or Schiermonnikoogs (the endonym and the exonym of the peculiar island language of Schiermonnikoog). I always try to learn the auxiliary verbs first in any new language that I am learning.

The primary auxiliary verbs in Eilauners or Schiermonnikoogs are: wazze (to be, grammatically used to express the past perfect, usually the past perfect of the passive), wezze (to become, grammatically used to form the passive), hewwe (to have, grammatically used to express the past perfect).

The modal auxiliary verbs in Eilauners or Schiermonnikoogs are: kinne (to be able to or to be possible, used to express ability or possibility), meie (to be allowed to, used to express permission), motte (to be obliged to, used to express obligation), sille (to be about to or to be necessitated to, used to express the future or necessity), wille (to be willing to, used to express intention).
