More about having things
There are two constructions using prepositions, dhe to and gen with, that indicate having things:
Ma + noun + dhe vy. I have + noun (literally There is + noun + to me.)
Ma + noun + gene’vy. I have + noun (literally There is + noun + with me.)
These prepositions and pronouns can be combined to shorter forms: dhe vy to me becomes dhebm to me, and gene’vy with me becomes genam or genev with me. So “I have” can be:
Ma + noun + dhebm. I have + noun (indicating ownership)
Ma + noun + genam. I have + noun (not necessarily owning)
Ma lever da dhebm. I have a good book. (lit.There is a good book to me.)
Ma carr nowyth dhebm. I have a new car. (lit.There is a new car to me.)
Ma peder cath dhebm. I have four cats. (lit.There are four cats to me.)
Ma sagh genam, bes nag ew peth vy.
I have a bag (with me), but it is not mine.
For emphasis you can still use the un-combined preposition and pronoun:
Ma hedna dhe vy. I have that.
