Re: the tale of three brothers

So, if the 'la' constructions are a little weird, how would you show motivation or deceit?

regarding Pu

Whenever the topic of the new book comes up, there is always at least one person who brings up that the community has made changes in usage to the language that might not be reflected in the book.

As someone new to the language, can someone give a summary of what those changes are, exactly?

Re: itsy bitsy spider

I didn't know that about modifier doubling, thank you for pointing that out. I miss the spout and the washing too, I'll try to find a way to make it work.

So, just to clarify a few things I was fuzzy on: you can do that post-comma clause thing with the vocative? Also 'sewi' can mean 'to climb'?

telo li anpa, pipi lili o!

"anu seme" vs "(verb) ala (verb)"

I'm not understanding the difference between the two ways of posing yes/no questions. Do they come with different implications? Like, is "anu seme" impolite? I'm just not understanding what purpose the verb doubling method serves. Is there really no difference?
