Yes, no, no.  The brackets for sumti connection are not ke/ke'e, but
LAhE/lu'u.  In the beginning, there was only lu'i/lu'u, and they were
pure brackets and without semantic content.  Then they became
transmogrified into set/mass/individual converters, as a result of my
being misled by the incautious word "set" in the definition of lu'i.
Then LUhI and LAhE got their grammar merged under the name of LAhE.
So to say what you want you need

	by .e lu'a dy .e gy. lu'u ne zy.

assuming, that is, that your variables really do refer to individuals
and not masses or sets, to avoid unwanted conversions.
