[edit] Conjunctions

about translating the english word 'and'
eg: cat and mouse
	buLA -> cat
	mIdA -> mouse

translates to :
buLalAwi mIdA
the and is actually the 'lAwi' part

1| buLA changes its suffix:
from buLA to buLa
2| add the 'and' to translated form 'lAwi'
3| add translated word for mouse , mIdA
buLalAwi mIdA

"cookie and milk"
	cookie: bisqkOdu
	milk: kiru
bisqkOdAwi kiru

here, the 'and' is .. 'Awi', notice that its just a
diacritic and a letter followed by diacritic..

several times, 'wadi' is also used as a literal replacement
for 'and'
cat and mouse
buLA wadi mIdA
cat  and  mouse

these both forms are acceptable.. 

something i must add..
there are several 
'lAwi' 'Awi' patterns, for example:
i and him
i = waharenq
him = wEna
combined final translation:
waharenqnAwi wEna

here it's 'nAwi'
the pattern to select depends on the ending of the pronoun before it..
