`Eylan Ayfalulukanä:
Ma Tirea


--- Quote ---I like <to do an action>
Oeru sunu fwa ________.

--- End quote ---

Doesn't this mean more like "I like that (a condition or action exists).

Wouldn't "I like <to do an action>" be:

Kem seri _____ a oeru sunu

All the various phrases in the dictionary could be added here, as well as the material in the 'getting to know you' Na'viteri blog posts.

--- End quote ---
We need to use a noun when we talk about an action. Unlike in English, you cannot take a verb as a subject (or even an object). To solve the problem, we use fwa (or futa if it's the direct object).
