Brezhoneg Tri/Lesson 1:Possession[edit]

You will learn[edit]

  • How to say "I have"

Kentell/Lesson[edit]

In English, you say the verb "to have" to say you have something.
In Breton, the literal translation is There is ___ to-me

Emañ ... din. or Emañ din ... .

  • Emañ - there is
  • din - to-me



  • to-me - din
  • to-you - dit
  • to-him - dezhañ
  • to-her - dezhi
  • to-us - deomp
  • to-you (pl.) - deoc'h
  • to-them - dezho


Then when placed with Emañ there is they become:

  • Emañ ____ din - There is ____ to me = I have ____
  • Emañ ____ dit - There is ____ to you = You have ____
  • Emañ ____ dezhañ - There is ____ to him = He has ____
  • Emañ ____ dezhi - There is ____ to her = She has ____
  • Emañ ____ deomp - There is ____ to us = We have ____
  • Emañ ____ deoc'h - There is ____ to you (pl.) = You (pl.) has ____
  • Emañ ____ dezho - There is ____ to them = they have ____


If you wish to ask Do you have? you make the form as in other questions
