jan Ne o, toki!
I think most people who deal with languages know about the difference between adjective and verb.
jan lape = sleep-person, sleeping person - "lape" is an adjective here.
ona li lape. = He is sleeping. - "lape" is an intransitive verb here.
(But it could also mean "It's sleep." - "lape" is an predicate noun here.)
BTW: As I have stressed several times, I keep as close as possible to the descriptions in pu and not to drafts in forum posts.
