A simple little post today. I was charmed by a delightful combination of little words:
- Ellitiĝi = to get out of bed / to get up (El-li-Ti-ji).
- Mi ellitiĝis = I got out of bed.
- El = out of
- Lito = bed
- Iĝi = to become (though this suffix is important and interesting and will receive more attention in future posts!)
So “elliti” = “to be out of bed” (from ellit-: concept of out of bed). By adding “iĝi” one makes it “to become out of bed”, in other words, get up, get out of bed.
I thought it seemed quite neat!
