Comment #1: le'ai on its own
Curtis W Franks (Wed Jun 24 07:25:07 2015)

How do we know that le'ai is actually occurring on its own (which, I
presume, means that it has no explicit terminator) rather than just quoting
an extremely long text? In Probability Theoretic language, there is no
apparent stopping time.

Oops, I misunderstood. I thought lo'ai at every point even though I read
or typed le'ai. Ignore me.

Ignore me.For the record the way I (provisionally) implemented this in camxes-exp goes like this:(LOhAI spaces? (!LOhAI !LEhAI any_word)*)? (LOhAI spaces? (!LOhAI !LEhAI any_word)*)? LEhAI spaces?Basically, lo'ai and sa'ai are like lo'u in that they really can't occur on their own. But zero, one or two "lo'ai *"/"sa'ai *" clauses can come before a le'ai.
