Fèk and sòti, in this case, will indicate an event that happened a short while ago, very recently, not too long ago
FYI: Some people may say fèk, fenk,fèrank, or fenrank
Some people may say sòti or sot
And sometimes they may use fèk sot together
1. M fèk wè papa w. – I just saw your dad (not too long ago)
2. M sot benyen, se pousa cheve mouye konsa. – I just showered that’s why my hair is so wet.
3. Nou pa grangou. Nou fenk sot manje. – We’re not hungry. We just ate. (a short while ago)
If you do add “te”, the Haitian Creole past tense determiner, then it will make the difference between past tense or present perfect and past perfect.
4. M fèk pale avè l – I just spoke to her. OR I’ve just spoken to her
5. M te fèk pale avè l – I had just spoken to her.
It’ll make more sense in the next sentence:
6. Nou te fèk fin manje ansanm lè lapolis te parèt douvan pòt la. - We had just finished eating together when the police showed up at the front door.
You could not have said: Nou
fèk fin manje ansanm lè ….
