Is {jai broda} grammatical? Doesn't it have to be followed by a BAI?
And shouldn't the substitute for {broda gasnu} ne {jai zei gau zei broda}?

I seriously propose it, because it means selmao SE can be derived from
(or conceived of as allomorphs of) JAI + FA. (Also, it affords a way
of deprivileging x1, which lacks a SE.) The case for it is merely
one of formal elegance. Nothing new can be said, since the job is
already done by SE.
