In the Book, chapter 10, verse 8.3, p. 225, there is a sentence in which a BAI
phrase semantically modifies a tense marker:
- le verba mo'i ri'u cadzu le bisli ma'i vo'a
Since "ma'i vo'a" modifies "mo'iri'u", not the bridi as a whole, it should be
"le verba mo'iri'uku pema'i vo'a cadzu le bisli". This, however, is
ungrammatical, at least according to jbofi'e. I propose that a BAI phrase, preceded by "pe", be allowed to modify a tense marker just as it can a sumti. --phma
- This seems questionable: the sema'i is zo'e, so it can just as easily be le se pritu as the whole bridi. The same thing happens when you put it in a pe. --mi'e .djorden.
You can use 'jai' for that.
