ó:lhstexwes means ‘They (were) loading it’. ‘They’ and ‘it’ are both understood from context.
Audio: Elizabeth Herrling
The phrase consists of these elements:
- ó:lhstexw – to load (this is the –ing form of ólhstexw)
- -es – here, marks that there is a third person subject (someone other than you or me). The subject in this case is the understood ‘they’
