It is possible to mix logical connection (explained in Chapter 14 ) with modal connection, in a way that simultaneously asserts the logical connection and the modal relationship. Consider the sentences:

which is a logical connection, and

The meanings of Example 9.74 and Example 9.75 can be simultaneously expressed by combining the two compound cmavo, thus:

Here the two sentences
*mi nelci do*
and
*mi nelci la .djein.*
are simultaneously asserted, their logical connection is asserted, and their causal relationship is asserted. The logical connective
* je*
comes before the modal

Since
*mi nelci do*
and
*mi nelci la .djein.*
differ only in the final sumti, we can transform
Example 9.76
into a mixed sumti connection:

Note that this connection is an afterthought one. Mixed connectives are always afterthought; forethought connectives must be either logical or modal.

There are numerous other afterthought logical and non-logical connectives that can have modal information planted within them. For example, a bridi-tail connected version of Example 9.77 would be:

The following three complex examples all mean the same thing.

mi | bevri | le | dakli |

I | carry | the | sack. |

.ijeseri'abo | tu'e | mi | bevri | le | gerku |

And-[effect] | ( | I | carry | the | dog. |

.ijadu'ibo | mi | bevri | le | mlatu | [tu'u] |

And/or-[equal] | I | carry | the | cat. | ) |

I carry the sack. As a result I carry the dog or I carry the cat, equally. |

mi | bevri | le | dakli |

I | carry | the | sack |

gi'eseri'ake | bevri | le | gerku |

and-[effect] | (carry | the | dog |

gi'adu'ibo | bevri | le | mlatu | [ke'e] |

and/or-[equal] | carry | the | cat) |

I carry the sack and as a result carry the dog or carry the cat equally. |

mi | bevri | le | dakli |

I | carry | the | sack |

.eseri'ake | le | gerku |

and-[effect] | (the | dog |

.adu'ibo | le | mlatu | [ke'e] |

and/or-[equal] | the | cat) |

I carry the sack, and as a result the cat or the dog equally. |

In

Note: The uses of modals discussed in this section are applicable both to BAI modals and to
*fi'o-*
plus-selbri modals.
