Re: TECH: lambda and "ka" revisited

I think I understand better now but I am not sure on some things.

Since when?  here is  grammar.233 excerpt, note the recursive prenex in

>sentence_40             :  bridi_tail_50  /* bare observative or mo answer */
>                        |  sentence_A_41
>                        ;
>sentence_A_41           :  GEK_807  sentence_A_41  GIK_816  sentence_40
>                        |  prenex_30  sentence_40
>                        |  statement_42

There is similar recursion at the prenex TUhE paragraph level.
(Better fix the text paper - multiple prenexes HAVE been used)

And then

So I guess I should have used da, de and "di voi nanmu"?

OK, let me present a practical, if contrived, problem or two.

Team A is better (xagmau) than Team B in leka Their running backs' speed
which I would have done as "leka le kelcnraninbeka cu sutra"

(I was going to say le mela runin. bek. , buit am unsure if that fits your
new version of "me" %^)

I don;t see how to even elicit the required lambda variable, unles it is
"leka le xu'eda kelcnraninbeka cu sutra".  Is this what you intend?
