I've started using {sei} as an adverbifier. I don't really understand what
it's supposed to be used for, but it is often very convenient to have
selbri modifiers other than stuck directly to the selbri. I suppose
{fi'o se krefu ku} would do as well, but it is longer and has a terminator.

The second {sei krefu} gets attached to the first {krefu} according to the
parser, but that seems ok: repeatedly repeating. The following {ca ji'a}
does not get sucked into the sei.

Good question... What if the voice actually did say the word {li'o}?
I don't know. Maybe I should have said {li'osa'a}.

Same answer. Perhaps {sisa'a} to actually delete a word within a quote,
and {si} if that is what the person said. (What if the person actually
said {sisa'a}?)
