  4. a text like zo coi or me'o ci

The Crash Course type system

This type system mostly distinguishes between

  • strictly NU-abstractions and topics (that can be NU-abstractions but perceived as objects from the raising viewpoint)
  • a te bridi requiring a plural sumti, a sequence, a singular sumti
  • realis/irrealis te bridi
