Dewgh barha nei

In these phrases deus and dewgh both mean 'come'. Deus is informal and can only be used when speaking to one person. Dewgh is used for speaking to more than one person or when speaking less informally to one person.

Deus chei (or) Dewgh chei: come in

Deus barha nei (or) Dewgh barha nei: Come along with us

Deus nes (or) Dewgh nes: Come close

In Nicholas Boson's words,
Deus barha nei ha welcòm che a vedh: Come along with us and you will be welcome
