Grammatical focus

Grammatical focus is used to draw attention of the listener and is always in the main level verb phrase (bridi).

The most usual method of shifting focus is by using fi'o.

mi djuno lo du'u do stati
I know that you are smart.

is turned into

fi'o djuno mi do stati
As I know, you are smart.
