tada (1) (타다)

show comment

Although this verb occurs on its own (ex. 228), it also exists a verb form where the word for fire occurs with the above word for BURN, but as opposed to ex. 10, there is no case marking on the fire-argument and the noun and verb are prosodically sound like one unit (cf. ex. 180). Without bul 'fire', this verb can have a broader meaning from 'catching fire' to 'char', but its usage with the word for 'fire' makes it clear that something was burning under clearly visible flames and burning down quite quickly.
