The same thing happens with {le broda ku ui}. That doesn't
express happiness about the word {ku} or the sumti {le broda ku},
but about the referent of the sumti.

I think that it doesn't matter much if the grammar attaches
the UI to {bu} or to {abu}. It makes no difference, just as
it would make no difference attaching it to {ku} or to
{le broda ku} as a whole.

In the case of {zo a ui} however, I think it makes more sense
to attach {ui} to the zo-word as a whole, i.e., ui is not quoted
here.
