Magic Words

Um, isn't the pseudo-selma'o really KOhA? Grammatically the quoted word
functions as a sumti. It's a single "any-word" wrt other Magic Word
processing, but its grammar is that of KOhA. Ditto uses of "any-string"
and such later in the document. Does this matter?

Also from the page:

da zei fa'o Lujvo of da and fa'o

 
Since you avoid xorxes' terminology of words "turning off" the magic of
other words, it isn't clear here that this {fa'o} doesn't terminate the
text-stream. Or that {da zei zei} doesn't suck up another following
word, but is just a brivla. You say that they are processed RTL, but I
think you need to be clearer about when these magic words lose their magic.

Probably okay. Adding onto zoi quotes is probably a Big Mistake
anyway. Adding onto lo'u/le'u quotes might be too, but if it can work,
maybe all right.

IMO, a non-quoted (non-disabled) fa'o is an end-of-file. {fa'o si
fo'a}, at best, begins a new text with {si fo'a}, which is allowed by
your rules. A helpful speaker would, of course, let you get away with it.
