Continuing with Gary’s list, and still experimenting with a one-a-day format:
- The two boys are working together.
Hmm. “are working”. That definitely implies motion, though it is motion in place. I suppose this can be expressed with a “to be” verb, using an abstract noun like “labor” as the destination: The two boys are standing in labor together. Yes. I like that. OK.
“Two boys” is the subject: kodna É›nna. The verb is sÉ›dÉ›, which is the default “to be” when humans are the subject. Labor, or rather “work, project”, is a class IV noun, kÉ›bÉ›dan, in the sessile singular. “Together” is the adverb nÉ¨ki:
32. kodna É›nna sÉ›dÉ› kÉ›bÉ›dan nÉ¨ki.
The two boys are working together.
32. Ã±atta jakÄ“wÄ«ke jÄnÄ«ke Ä mamÅÄ«Ã±i Ä“nne;
The two boys are working together. (The two boys are making joint work.)
