Hmm. I read the rules as generating {broda} (the first broda, that is),
as while ba'e tags the following word as emphatic, it does not
prevent it from having whatever effect it has.

Which means you can't erase a BAhE with "si". Which sucks.

BTW, it should say somewhere that after erasure words have done their
work, any remaining erasure words make the utterance ungrammatical.
