táa (2)

show comment

This verb is basically the counterpart both of 'go', but also expresses 'carry' in combination with the postposition ti; the coding frame corresponding to 'S goes somewhere' has been selected; the coding frame corresponding to 'A carries T somewhere' is A > V > T+ti > L, lit. 'A goes with T somewhere'. Like naa 'come', táa has no causative form. Contrary to naa ... ti 'bring', táa ... ti 'carry' does not lend itself to Postposition Incorporation.
