Letwan is listed as a noun, and not an adjective.

It's been known to happen.

Eyk is transitive.

Under Inflections, you say nì- is "Pro.(ductive) for adjectives only" but in A Message from Paul he uses the term "Nìaynga" (Nì- + ay+ nga), which is not derived from an adjective.

For adjectives it's productive, i.e. could be used with any adjective. But it does not mean that it's impossible to use that with another words :)

sayrìp is declared as handsome, good looking (normally used of men)

shouldn't it be used for men or di I misunderstand something?

and at takrra: (c.w. from krr krr ...)
there should be time instead of the second krr, I guess.

Yes, IMHO and as far as I know:
sayrìp - used for men
sevin - used for woman

Why does tungzup have the (ii) which indicated funny infix positioning and yet the IPA has two dots, which means there are two places to put infixes? [t-uN.'z-up^]

PF vtr. drop (ii) (c.w. from tung allow and zup fall)

Tung is a verb and zup is a verb.  I'm confused.

Looks like I might have changed it at some point. I'll remove the ii. Thanks.

Tung is a verb and zup is a verb.  I'm confused.

I think it is because usually those verbs take infixes in the main verb, but "tungzup" doesn't. It takes infixes as a regular verb.

Edit:

Ok, it looks like I was wrong... Sorry.  :-[

I think oe ke kawkrr kamä should be changed to oe kawkrr ke kamä for I never went (example sentence for kaw-).

Sure.. ke always should be right before the word which it's related to.

Okay, here are some other mistakes from inflections section that should be fixed:

  • <ilv> and <irv> examples: aspect infixes go only into modal verb, not into controlled.
  • In fay+ example it should be these cliffs instead of these plants.
  • In tsa- example it should be that viperwolf, not that tree.

Fixed tungzup back; You were right, that was why I had ii there. I forgot.

Changed those examples. Not sure what to do about ilv and irv. You guys have any examples?

Concerning <irv> example: Kemaweyan has a very good one in his signature :)
