Continuing with Gary’s list:
- Does the robin sing in the rain?
Earlier, we had a kitten playing in the rain, where “rain” was the destination, and “playing”, or rather “game”, was the purpose/source. And the kitten was “moving about”. Here we have singing, and habitual singing at that. That would probably be “emitting song”, and “emit” is a verb I used early on for the sun shining and people shouting, evi. And, while evi doesn’t allow for destinations, it does allow a location like “in the rain”.
Except, no robins. I dislike birds. (Which is a little odd, ’cause I like reptiles, and birds are essentially modern dinosaurs. When I think of them like that, I dislike them a little less.) Let’s see, what could be singing in the rain? Maybe tiny flying hadrosaurs? Hmm. Maybe the lizards sing on this world. I have a word for that: udle. As for “song”, that would be syɨme, a class II noun.
