This ikran, that ikran
« on: May 31, 2017, 07:11:57 am »
Ke terkup ke set, ma eylan.

It's really me. And I have a question. Maybe I've known this long ago, slä... oe ke zerok...

How do you use fì- and tsa- combined with a noun starting with a vowel? As per the subject: this ikran, that ikran.

Fìikran looks keyawr oeru.

Ma Paul!!! :D

Nice to read from you again ;)

It is as you expected: fìikran looks weird but is correct. The only time that these prefixes combine is when the noun starts with the same vowel.

fìlva ≈ this drop, flake etc. (from fì- + ìlva)
tsatan ≈ that light (from tsa- + atan)

I expect the same answer, but do we have official confirmation? I'm pretty sure it was already discussed, but don't remember where...
