Ni - a versatile fijian word

The word 'Ni' corresponds to these English words and that's why I call it versatile:

  • As
  • When
  • Since
  • That
  • Because

And here are some examples of its use

Lock your bag since there are thieves around.
Lokata na nomu kato ni levu na dau butako.

Did you know that it's raining?
O kila ni tau tiko na uca?

New words
Uca - rain
Tau na uca - raining
Lokata - lock
kila - know
