9.15. Logical and non-logical connection of modals

Logical and non-logical connectives are explained in detail in Chapter 9. For the purposes of this chapter, it suffices to point out that a logical (or non-logical) connection between two bridi which differ only in a modal can be reduced to a single bridi with a connective between the modals. As a result, Example 9.91 and Example 9.92 mean the same thing:

Example 9.91. 

la.frank.cubajraseka'alezdani
That-namedFrank runswith-destinationthehouse.
.ijela.frank.cubajrateka'alezdani
Andthat-namedFrank runswith-originthehouse.

Frank runs to the house, and Frank runs from the house.


Example 9.92. 

la.frank.cubajraseka'a
That-namedFrank runswith-destination
jeteka'alezdani
andwith-originthehouse.

Frank runs to and from the house.


Neither example implies whether a single act, or two acts, of running is referred to. To compel the sentence to refer to a single act of running, you can use the form:

Example 9.93. 

la.frank.cubajraseka'alezdani
That-namedFrank runswith-destinationthehouse
ce'eteka'alezdani
[joined-to]with-originthehouse.

The cmavo ce'e creates a termset containing two terms (termsets are explained in Chapter 9 and Chapter 9). When a termset contains more than one modal tag derived from a single BAI, the convention is that the two tags are derived from a common event.
