Got a few pretty words for you today. They’re simple enough in meaning, but I find them pretty enough to mention. So without further delay:
- Ambaŭ = both
- Neŭtrala = neutral/impartial
- Daŭri = to continue/last/endure
My favourite in the list is “ambaŭ”. I was always a fan of the English word “amber” but the thing that let it down ever so slightly, was the mildly dull “er” sound at the end. Here, it’s replaced with a wide-mouthed sound that just complements the first syllable perfectly!
A word of caution though! If you have a sentence that contains “both A and B”, ambaŭ is not used in this context, one would say instead “kaj A kaj B”.
Ambaŭ is used in situations like “I want both animals!”
