Survey of Prior Discussions

It seems that in many cases where pa'o is used, mo'i pa'o would be more accurate. Is this a misinterpretation on my part, or should this use be explicitly invalidated?

  • When the event already contains "movement" (some vector) by virtue of its selbri, then mo'i pa'o is more often wrong than correct. mo'i in general is usually wrong. --selpa'i
