Comment #1: Reversed place structure?
Arnt Richard Johansen (Wed Oct 15 14:51:28 2003)

Shouldn't it rather be nonselkansa?

I think that is open for discussion. It could be that x1 and x2 jointly
does x3. Another reading is that the place structure is parallel to
sidju, so that x3 is mainly the business of x2, but x1 accompanies,
"joins in", so to speak.

True. In either case, nonselkansa will work, but it is a bit longer.

I was thinking that another word for "alone" might be kancau, "without
company", x1 claxu lo kansa be x1 bei x2.
