Usage notes

  • Gean is often omitted in colloquial speech. It is considered a default verb, so if a sentence has no verb, gean could most probably be inserted for purposes of English translation. It should be noted also that in earlier English, this could also be done; i.e. “We must away” for “We must go away” or “We must leave”

    • 1st and 3rd person singular: gong, gyng
