Re: jan Kikamesi. jan lawa pi ma tomo Uluku

tenpo ala LA ona li lukin e pan e telo nasa

jan lawa soweli li lape la jan Enkitu li pale ala Again the contrast of "when. while" with "if" is lost (but is it needed?), I assume 'pale' is 'lape' as I would type it.

Re: jan Kikamesi. jan lawa pi ma tomo Uluku

jan Kikamesi li lukin e pale. ? I thought you had my finger problem and meant "lape' but now I am not sure. Gilgamesh looked at/saw sleep or, 'pali', activity? or 'lukin lape' "tried to sleep"? (I take it 'lukin' is a helping verb like 'wile' that takes a whole predication as a comple...

Re: toki musi mi

Well, I'm not sure that 'lon' implies stasis, and certainly as a transitive verb it implies a change and the causal agency of the man in the change. and I would have thought that what was important was the man placed the money *in the attic,* how it got there seems less to the point, requiring only ...
