.u'u mi lazni lo ka za'u re'u ciksi .i pu .irci casnu fa mi'a .i cusku zoi

< omni___> .y is used for a bunch of things, sometimes as a reaction to
something you don't immediately know how to react to, sometimes to a
mistake you've made, sometimes when you're not sure what word to use
< mungojelly> .y used to be considered mechanical somehow, but it's now
more of an attitudinal, it shows a moment of confusion, but a different
confusion than .ua nai confusion hmm how to say
< mungojelly> .y is more like to .ua nai toi, it attaches to what's
going on metalinguistically rather than to the previous word
< mungojelly> what we thought of .ie'o for might have more properly been
expressed before with .y according to the book definitions, but in
practice the word we were using for it was .i, people
would often say .i .i .i .i .i .i .i .i .i .i .i and it wasn't really a
zillion blank selbri at all just thinking
