[[jbocre: bi'ai|bi'ai]] [CAhA] must be: modal aspect: necesary attribute

''bi'ai'' is equivalent to ''na ka'e na'' (that is ''naku ka'eku naku'' for those who [[jbocre: scope of tenses and NA|value the book's prescriptions above common sense]]). It's proposed for the sake of symmetry. (cf. bilga, [[jbocre: CAhA as sumtcita|CAhA as sumtcita]])

''.ianaicai .i ma smuni le si'o da na [[jbocre: ka'enai|ka'enai]] broda''
in general.

''ka'enai'' does not mean the same as ''ka'e na'', it means ''na ka'e''.
''ka'e na'' means that the negative is possible. ''na ka'e'' and ''ka'enai'', on the other hand, negate the possibility. --[[User:xorxes|xorxes]]
'''---> [[jbocre: scope of tenses and NA|scope of tenses and NA]]'''
What is the symmetry?
bi'ai                      = na ka'e na = ka'e nai na = not capable of not
na bi'ai    = bi'ai nai    = ka'e na                  = capable of not
bi'ai na                  = na ka'e    = ka'e nai    = not capable of
na bi'ai na = bi'ai nai na = ka'e                    = capable of
Why only a cmavo for ''na ka'e na'' and not ''na ca'a na'' etc.?
--[[User:And Rosta|And Rosta]]
The symmetry is with other such constructs in the language. Just as it is much easier to say ''ro broda'' than ''naku su'o broda naku'', it is much easier to say ''bi'aiku'' than ''naku ka'eku naku''. A cmavo is not proposed for ''na ca'a na'', because there does not seem to be any interesting difference between ''na ca'a'' and ''ca'a na''. For the record, it was me who originally proposed this cmavo. -- [[jbocre: Adam|Adam]]
