'Nother tidbit:

Quote from: Frommer
Keruseya tute vs. ke rey a tute (don't attach the ke or a, since rey is a finite verb) is parallel to "dead (= non-living) person" vs. "person who doesn't live OR isn't alive" in English. Semantically they seem pretty much the same [...].

Note the Avatar line (which I don't believe made it into the final version of the film):

Hetuwongìl awngeyä swotut ska'a, fte kllkivulat keruseya tskxet.

'The aliens destroy our sacred place to dig up dead rock.'

Quote from: Frommer
Palulukan atusaron lu lehrrap. 'A hunting thanator is dangerous.'

Palulukan a teraron lu lehrrap. 'A thanator that's hunting is dangerous.'

There's our transitive verb. Pretty similar to sbrd in these verbs, but that may not be the case for modals etc.; I don't know.
