Then, faurdu'e was meant to be the jvajvo "fasnu+dukse" = x1 dukse lo ka
fasnu ku x2 (= x1 happens too much for x2 to happen).

Most importantly, you still did not specify what can go into x2. Specify
this properly and you get my upvote.
I am aware of the example, I think I get a vague idea, but I am still not
