Definition #70926 - Preferred [edit]
selma'o KAUhU
definition Predicate to variable-binding binary quantifier. The first slot of the predicate must be a property.
notes Terminator: te'u. Semantically equivalent to kai'i but behaving syntactically as a quantifier, and therefore able to bind da, for example. If a kau'u-phrase is followed by a selbri or a poi-clause, the referents of the x1 or ke'a slot of those will be passed collectively to the x2 of the kau'u-predicate. A kau'u-phrase followed by a sumti other than a bindable variable (da…) will treat this latter as if it was a selbri «me [the sumti] me'u». Usage examples: «kau'u roldza da viska da» = «roldza fa lo ka ce'u viska ri» = «ro da viska da»; «kau'u kampu lo mlatu cu se tuple vo da» = «kampu lo mlatu fa lo ka ce'u se tuple vo da» = «ro lo mlatu cu se tuple vo da». See also kai'i.
