More stuff about the May 28th post on Na'viteri
« on: December 30, 2020, 12:58:52 pm »
This is a "follow-up" of the May 28th post on Na'viteri.

I sent an email on May 23rd asking about the transitivity of 'eyng and he came back 3 days later with what would become the Na'viteri post.

However, here's the part of the exchange I forgot to reveal:

This is a very interesting answer. So I guess "vin teyngta" would be complementary to pawm due its restriction.
My only question about 'eyng for now: How do we build a construction like the following: He answered that he doesn't know him.

Irayo seiyi ngaru ! I'm sure the community will be pleased by this post.

Quote from: Karyu Pawl, May 26, 2020
Yes, vin teyngta is fine:

Fol volin teyngta Tsyeykìl tok pesenget.

This means essentially, "They wanted to know where Jake is." In terrible English, but more literally: "They requested the where-is-Jake answer." 😊

As for "He answered that he doesn't know him," I'd simply say:

'Oleyng po san po ke smon oeru sìk.

'Eyng here can be considered a verb of speaking like plltxe, and so it takes san . . . sìk.

P.

P. S.: Is there anyone who asked about pawm? Because KP says in his post "through some private discussions".
