|A. auxiliary V-dape||V again|
|B. auxiliary V-seppe||fail to V|
|C. dape-seppe=S||S stumble, trip|
Dape and seppe occur only as auxiliaries, except for dape-seppe ‘stumble, trip’, which is the only time dape appears as a primary verb. The obstacle stumbled upon or tripped over is marked with su.
Dape as an auxiliary can also mean ‘back, behind, after’ as in
|D. da-dape=A=O||A follow, go after O|
|E. se-dape=A(=O)||A say back, reply to O|
Dape is derived from da plus the particle pe ‘from’.
Seppe is used to mean try but fail to V, or intend but then end up not V-ing. Some less transparent constructions are:
|F. da-seppe=S||S avoid, shun, fail to go (AVOIDED=du)|
|G. se-seppe=S||S misspeak|
Seppe is derived from sede and pe.
