Here is a list of the phrases we covered in this week’s little Jèrriais lesson on BBC Jersey (Monday after 6pm). We revised last week’s verbs and added a few more:
- liéthe = to read
- r’liéthe/èrliéthe = to re-read, to read again, to read back
- dêliéthe = to read backwards (to be done with magic books, according to folklore)
- graie = to make, to prepare, to create
- bûchi = to break
putting r’/èr as a prefix on any verb in Jèrriais conveys the idea of a repetition of the action.
