Magic Words

> *Ewww*. You want SA to skip BAhE to the *right*? Gross.

I don't exactly *want* that, it's just the least bad alternative
I can find. My preferences, in order, would be:

1- Eliminate SA from the language.
2- Change the meaning of SA to something simpler.
3- Use the emphasized/nonce word as the replacement word in
{SA BAhE }.
4- Use BAhE as the replacement word.

I wouldn't put it in selma'o ZEI though. That would only
allow single word replacements.

We already use {si} for single words, and now we can also use
{zo le si zo lo} and {lo'u da de di le'u si lo'u di de da le'u} for
replacing a word that is not grammatical by itself, or many

If we want something more formal, perhaps we could somehow recycle
SA for this?

The section mentions SA SI and SA SU, not SA SA, but that's
what I would expect for SA SA too, yes.
