Re: pointing

Pointing is, I believe, universal, so Peter is surely quite
right that we need a word for it. But, as far as I am aware,
there are no established grounds for arguing that some
concept should be expressible by gismu rather than by lujvo.
Maybe there should be such grounds, but at any rate, for
the time being I suppose the argument must proceed by showing
what's wrong with candidate lujvo.

{jundi/jarco zei troci} or {troci zei jundi/jarco}?

But I have nothing against a gismu for "point to", though I would prefer
it to be inceived by discarding an obsolete gismu.
