were (we were) is onime

onimeonime = were (verb "to be"/"to exist" - past tense - we were - 1st person plural) (some things Google found for "onime": an uncommon term; Onime-no-Kyō (Demon Eyes Kyo) is the main character in the Japanese manga Samurai Deeper Kyo; an unusual last name that can be Nigerian; user names)

Word derivation for "we were" (to exist) :
Basque = ginen, Finnish = olimme
Miresua = onime

Welcome new followers! I'm doing past tense conjugations of one of the two Miresua conlang verbs meaning "to be". Finnish has one verb for "to be"; Basque has two verbs, like Spanish.

rs..funny! In my conlang "Oni me" means "They are behind". In my language Naliwo there's no verb "to be" in present tense because this characteristic grammatical i copied from Russian language.
