The infinitive of the verb ‘to be’ has two optional forms in Heligolandic: wee or wees.
The verb ‘to be’ is conjugated thus in Heligolandic:
Ik ben – I am
Di bes – you are
Hi/dji/deät es – he/she/it is
Wi/djüm/dja sen – we/you/they are
Observe I lumped all the plural forms together because the verb is conjugated the same for all persons in the plural. The Heligolandic verb varies most in the singular and therefore this is the most vital to focus whilst learning the language.
The infinitive of the verb ‘to have’ is hoa in Heligolandic.
‘To have’ is thus conjugated:
Ik hoa – I have
Di has – you have
Hi/dji/deät hat – he/she/it has
Wi/djüm/dja hoa – we/you/they have
