Verb opposites
« on: January 22, 2011, 12:37:15 am »
Notes: mod. = modal verb, vin. = intransitive verb, and vtr. = transitive verb.
Some intransitive verbs have transitive equivalents, such as toltem for tem, however I did not put those equivalents side by side.
Transitivity is also a tad mixed...

Why wouldn't lonu be an opposite of yìm, spe'e or syep?
