I believe everything in there is still correct.
Apologies if this is the wrong thread, but I figured since my initial question got asked and branched off into something of this nature, I should bring it here.
English does not have a topical marker but the "topic" can be easily identified. Take this phrase for example:
"I bought a copy of Avatar. Seeing the movie again was really wonderful!"
In that sentence we can see that the topic is Avatar. We would denote this with the topical marker -ìri or -ri if this was in Na'vi. Why is it important to know the topic? Let us look at this phrase now:
"I bought a copy of Avatar. Seeing a movie again was really wonderful!"
Here we've changed "the" to "a" in the 2nd sentence. We have almost the exact same sentence but we are no longer referring to the topic of "Avatar" when we talk about seeing a movie. So, in those two sentences knowing what the topic is and whither we are referring to the topic or not is really important.
THIS! THIS! I UNDERSTAND THIS! Could someone point me to one of the example sentences
or make one up that reads like this? As of right now, I don't need an explanation if the sentences are solid.
