Ordinals & nume
« on: June 05, 2013, 08:30:20 am »
Ma frapo,

two short confirmations.

I asked Pawl whether putting nì- on ordinals—as we see in nì’awve—would be productive


Quote from: K.Pawl, 5 Jun 2013
I don't see why there shouldn't be nìmuve, nìpxeyve, etc. I think they're fine.

Second, I asked about the transitivity of nume … and I feared as much ;)

Quote from: K.Pawl, 5 Jun 2013
As for nume, I've been thinking of it as intransitive, in the sense of 'acquire knowledge or understanding.'

So to learn X, you use nume with X in the topical:

For example, here's some film dialog they asked me for that was never used:

You must learn to hunt with a bow and arrow.
Tsko swizawfa a tìtaronìri zene fko nivume.

So, nume is intransitive … huh, quelle surprise! :)

My goodness, can't believe how long I've been waiting to find out the transivity of nume. Excellent work, ma Plumps.

nume = vin.?! Wou, eltxur tìtxen si nìtxan  :o :P Irayo ma Plumps! :D

Though I wonder why inan is vtr. ("gain knowledge from sensory input"), while nume is now declared as vin. ("acquire knowledge or understanding")... Tse... pxasìk :P

Interesting thought:

What did Tsu'tey say in the film about Jake? This alien will learn nothing!  Almost sounded like:

Well, seems that many texts should be rewritten. It'll require some time to get used to this fact. :o

Not sure if you meant:

Lì'uri alu nume, ayoeng set zene nivume nìmun!
Now we must learn the word 'nume' again!

srane, zene... but I'm already used to the change. I think. :D

I never thought of alu being needed there. Good catch! I still don't really understand that word.

The use of lì'fya was a mistake from trying hard to use vocabulary without looking it up to confirm what I thought :(

In any case, I am looking forward to meeting you in person in a few weeks, and maybe even learning something from you ;)
