But surely one gardenpaths on that. That is, you'd parse it as

   by e [lua dy] e gy

until you hit {luu}, and then I guess you'd have to backtrack.
Or is there some quirk of the grammar of LUhU that says it's not
elidable before a sumti connective, so that if you want [lua dy] then
you'd have to say:

   by e lua dy luu e gy

? And the terminators are not elidable in

   by e lua lae dy luu e gy luu ne zy

?  ---coo, mie and
