Discussion of "zukte'obi"

Comment #1: Property?
Wuzzy (Fri May 23 15:26:23 2014)

I can’t really wrap around the fact why a hobby is considered a property
here. Can someone give me an example (maybe with translation)?

A hobby is something you do. The action is a property of whoever performs
it. (compare kakne2, troci2, snada2, zukte2, etc, which are nowadays more
commonly ka-places).

lo ka [ce'u] limna kansa lo delfinu cu zukte'obi mi
"Swimming with dolphins is a hobby of mine."

(An applied ka-abstraction often translates quite nicely to an
infinitive.)
