Bengali: আমি (S) ভাত (O) খাই (V).

Auxiliary verbEdit

Auxiliary verb is absent in Bengali language. Example:
English: I (Pronoun) am (Auxiliary verb) reading (Main verb) a (Article) book (Noun).
Bengali: আমি (Pronoun) একটি(Article) বই(Noun) পড়ছি(Main verb).

PrepositionEdit

English: The man sat on the chair.
Bengali: লোকটি চেয়ারটিতে বসল. Here 'তে (te)' is bibhakti
