LEVEL 9 LESSON 24
If you are familiar with the structure -(), which was introduced in the previous lesson, it is easy to guess what -(/)() and -()() mean.

Origins
-(/)() is a combination of -(/) and - , and the literal translation is while saying ABC does XYZ. Similarly, -()() is originally -() + - and, therefore, literally translates as while saying that ABC is XYZ.

However, what makes the endings -(/)() and -()() have different meanings from the literal translations is the fact that they can be used as sentence endings. Note that the endings have - at the end for .

Actual Usage
-(/)() and -()() can be used when you want to show your surprise or dissatisfaction after finding out that what you thought was true is not the actual truth, or when you are just fact-checking what you heard before with someone else.

Ex) + - = = you said you were going home (but you are here)

Ex) + - = = you said you were a student (yet, apparently,you are not)

Ex) + - = = you told me to leave (and now you are saying otherwise)

Sample Sentences:
1. ? = I heard you were going to move next month.

2. ? = I heard its already over. Is that right?

3. ? = Didnt you say you were still a student?

4. ! = You said you didnt know each other that well!

5. . = You said you didnt have a girlfriend!
