  1. PA Dutch 101 Video 19: Present Progressive. Present Progressive

  2. Present Progressive • As we covered in Video 7, all verbs conjugate in the present tense. • However, similar to English, PD has two present tense forms: • Sarah plays the piano. • Sarah is playing the piano.

  3. Present Progressive • In the first sentence, there is a sense of repetition: Sarah plays the piano every Friday, for example. • In the second sentence, there is a sense of present action: At this moment in time, Sarah is playing the piano.

  4. Present Progressive • Both forms can be used in PD: • Sarah schpielt die Glapperbax. • Sarah iss die Glapperbax am schpiele. • Notice that the two forms differ on many levels in PD. • The first example is what we discussed in Video 7. The second is an example of the Present Progressive.

  5. Present Progressive • To form the Present Progressive in PD use the following equation: • Subject – SEI – other stuff (singular) – AM – VERB. • Subject – SEI – AM - other stuff (plural) – VERB. • Die Sarah issdieGlapperbaxamschpiele. • Der Steve iss am Grummbiereesse. • ‘Sis am reggere. • Sie sin amKaardeschpiele.

  6. Iewing - Practice • Translate the following sentences using both normal conjugation and the Present Progressive: • My uncle is singing (singe) a song (es Lied). • Mei Onkelsingt en Lied. • Mei Onkeliss en Lied am singe. • The dog (der Hund) is sleeping (schlofe). • Der Hundschloft. • Der Hundiss am schlofe.
