Proposed Definitions And Examples
Proposed Definition of ba'e
Emphasize next word. Forethought emphasis indicator. Indicates that next word is especially emphasized or emphatic. For grammatical purposes, "ba'e" marks the following word but does not change its nature. (The construct behaves just as the marked word by itself.) Multiple BAhE cmavo may be used in succession, and they combine to mark the next non-BAhE word.
The following examples are intended to illustrate interactions of ba'e with other words of special grammatical effect, and hence may be pathological.
mi cusku ba'e si la'e di'u
I said emphasis, no, the referent of the previous thing I said.
ko pensi me'o depsna bu .e me'o ba'e bu
Think about "hesitation sound", and the emphasis letter.
lo nu ciksi lo ba'e zei se zei cinmo cu nandu
Explaning the emphasis-emotion is difficult.
Proposed Definition of za'e
Nonce word follows. Forethought nonce-word indicator. Indicates that the next word is a nonce creation or is nonstandard in some way. For grammatical purposes, "za'e" marks the following word but does not change its nature. (The construct behaves just as the marked word by itself, though a marked brivla may have an unpredictable place structure.) Multiple BAhE cmavo may be used in succession, and they combine to mark the next non-BAhE word.
See also the examples for ba'e, which is grammatically identical to za'e.
Proposed Definition of zei
lujvo glue. Connects words into a lujvo. Joins preceding and following words into a lujvo. For grammatical purposes, "zei" binds with the preceding word and the following word. The combination is considered a single brivla (i.e. it is treated as just one word). In the case of an apparent conflict, the effects of this word (and all other words that change the grammatical effects of nearby words) should be read left to right. See also lujvo.
Keywords: lujvo glue.
