she doesn't talk to me because of nothing. with no reason. and that's why I don't talk to her. ;)
and thanks for the really quick answer.

I'd say ta kea lun then. And I think tafral would be better then alunta. Alunta is still because.

thanks ma Alyara.

alunta conveys the same meaning as tafral here. I also think tafral is better because alunta makes it one sentence. just liked the sound of taluna and alunta.
and taluna ke'u I think has the same meaning as ta kea lun. just a different approach. it is also not quite true to say "without any reason" because sometimes there is a reason, but for the speaker it is a stupid reason which shouldn't cause fights. or perhaps he doesn't know the reason.

Alunta and tafral are not interchangeable. Alunta is always because and is used like this: [clause] alunta, [clause] NOT [clause], alunta [clause]. Here's an example: Tsrayä sute lu peyä eylan alunta, tolung fkol futa ftem po.

alunta is when the cause is before it. so it carries a similar meaning as tafral.

Well, you can put this way: ta kea lun [poe] oehu ke plltxe alunta, [oe] poehu ke plltxeI don't speak to her because she doesn't speak to me for no reason. But in my opinion it doesn't sound all that well.
