Tsa-Words, The Complete Set
« on: April 21, 2020, 05:09:31 pm »
"Speaking of contractions that we haven't seen officially yet, do "tsa'ul a", "tsa'ur a", and "tsa'uri a" contract?"

Quote from: Karyu Pawl
The answer is: Yes! The contracted forms are:

fwa / tsawa
fula / tsala
futa / tsata
fura / tsara
furia / tsaria

So we have 5 "f-words" and 5 parallel "ts-words." The only missing ones are the theoretical fì'uä a --> fuä (fua would get confused with fwa) , and tsa'uä a --> tsä, but I can't think of any contexts in which they would be used. [I may be having second thoughts on this! More soon, I hope.]


As you've noticed, I've been using the f-versions pretty much exclusively. The ts-versions could certainly be used as well, but I don't think it would be a random choice. There should be some principle that decides between fwa and tsawa, futa and tsata, etc. I'll need to think about that.

Thanks for the update.

I thought we’ve seen tsaria before …  :-\

Tsaria fkol pole’un futa Loak slu taronyu, sempul ’efu ye.
‘Father is content that it’s been decided Loak will be a hunter.’ [1]

Tsaria pol awngati ke txayìng oe ’efu am’ake nìwotx.
‘I’m entirely confident that he won’t abandon us.’ [2]

Great that we have the full set now ;D All the tables that we can add to grammars and learning materials ;)
