jardi ganarrany

show comment

Complex Verb. Lit. 'full + PUT'. The coding frame for this complex verb, as well as the one formed with the Kriol translation equivalent bilimap 'fill' as uninflecting verb, is consistently 'A fills P into L'. Unfortunately I did not explore a potential alternation with L as direct object.
