He said to me: it was a surprising sight if you came to it suddenly.
alxien is another clause-level modifier, and refers to something unexpected by the speaker that happens. There are two other words, taxien and kexien. taxien refers to something that the speaker expects but doesn’t happen, and kexien refers to something the speaker expects that happens. I decided I didn’t need a word for something the speaker doesn’t expect that doesn’t happen. 🙂
