Definition #71436 - Preferred [edit]
selma'o BAI
definition na'e fancuka modal: no matter (indirect question)...
notes Used with du'u and an indirect question. If the question type is xu then it is synonymous with some construction using the U truth function, e.g. "mi pendo do ja'u lo du'u xu kau do ricfu" = "mi pendo do i ju do ricfu". In fact it should not be used with xu since the U truth function is much shorter. It is designed to be used with all other question types. For example, "mi na kakne lo ka smusku kei ja'u lo du'u ma kau bangu", for which there only exists the paraphrase: "no da poi bangu zo'u mi kakne lo ka smusku kei bau da". It is also designed to be used with a ni or jei abstraction ("jei" in this case being mostly synonymous with "du'u xu kau"), e.g. "mi ba jinga ja'u lo ni lo drata cu troci". See also: du'u, na'e, fancuka, ni, jei, u, ju, gi'u, gu'u, gu.
