<the adeverbial one (as the gloss in CLL shows). Modals use {ku} for the
same purpose and so there is no conflict. I suggest the easiest thing
is to always use {ku} with {ba} as well (it is already legal, I think,
and if not could easily be made so) and then bring PU into line with
BAI (though that would ruin two pages of CLL which purpport – incorrectly
–to explain the difference).>>

On second thought, having two marginally different structures with completely opposite meanings looks to be a blueprint for disaster. Since the adverb use is so well embedded - from the form with a sumti — it might be better to use that form for the much less common (?) connective use, that is, have BAI follow PU rather than the other way.
