Comment #1: Advice?
Curtis W Franks (Mon Sep 26 03:42:18 2016)

Does the meaning of "suggest" here encompass "advise"? Can I interpret
".e'u do broda" as "I advise that you do blah" rather than "I suggest that
you do blah"? The fact that it can act as a warning with "nai" attached
seems to hint that it can, but I am still not sure.

I can make a suggestion without trying to really guide the other person. I
can suggest a narrowing of a definition as just a possibility that should
be considered without really backing/supporting/fighting for the content of
the suggestion. But advice is something given which the utterer believes to
be manifestly better, important, or beneficial. ("Suggest" also has the
meaning of "to hint at", but I doubt that this is the intended meaning -
tell me if I am wrong).
