The verbs section is arranged differently than the other vocabulary lessons on this site. Instead of arranging words in terms of a theme, they will be arranged according to the type of object which they take.
The verbs on this page fit the pattern:
Verb + Noun/Noun Phrase
If these verbs appear without an object in the sentence, an object must be understood from the context or have a resultative complement.
\chaam\ \ga\ can mean either to participate in something, or to attend it.
/da/ has several functions in addition to the basic meaning of "to hit". One common use is to refer to playing any sport where hitting is involved, but it does not refer to playing games where contact is not part of the game.
gwo means "to cross", "to go beyond", or "to pass through". gwo \sang\ means "to die" because it literally means "to pass beyond life".
\hoi\ means both "to open" and "to start". It functions in many ways, including as a resultative complement. It is also the verb used mean "turn on" in refer to electrical equipment.
means both to cook rice, and to cook any sort of meal.
