Usage notesEdit

When followed by a clause with a pronominal subject and adverbial predicate, the subject takes the form of a suffix pronoun attached to ntt. The exceptions to this are clauses with a first-person singular subject, which use the dependent pronoun wj, and sometimes a third-person subject, which can use the dependent pronoun st. Other subjects rarely also appear in dependent-pronoun form.
