Ma oeyä eylan ayawne,

New vocabulary:

koren ayll ‘law, societal rule’

leykek (vtr., ley.KEK) ‘enforce’ (from ley ‘obey’ with the causative infix <eyk>: i.e., ‘make obey’)

[NOTE: Remember how the causative structure works with transitive verbs:

   Awngal horenit ayll lek.
   ‘We obey the laws.’

   Pol awngaru horenit ayll leykek.
   ‘He makes us obey the laws.’

If we remove the “causee,” we simply get:

   Pol horenit ayll leykek.
   ‘He enforces the laws.’]

horenleykekyu (n., HO.ren.ley.KEK.yu) ‘law enforcer, police officer’

This is often shortened colloquially to leykekyu.

zevakx (adj., ZE.vakx, ofp) ‘cruel’

tìzevakx (n., tì.ZE.vakx) ‘cruelty’

tìzevakxnga’ (n., tì.ZE.vakx.nga’, nfp) ‘cruel’

So: tute azevakx ‘cruel person,’ but aylì’u atìzevakxnga’, ‘cruel words.’

nìzevakx (adv., nì.ZE.vakx) ‘cruelly’

fmong (vtr.) ‘steal, rob’

tìfmong (n., tì.FMONG) ‘theft’

fmongyu (n., FMONG.yu) ‘thief’
