... what are their differences? Examples:

"pe'u" is in selmaho COI, so you probably mean "pe'u do'u ko klama". Without the terminator, "ko" is part of the vocative phrase.

The difference is one of focus: "pe'u" focuses on who you ask, ".e'o" focuses on what you ask. One can make a similar distinction between "ki'e" and ".i'o".

If "pe'u ko" is "pe'u" focusing on "ko" i.e. who you ask, how would it be different from "ko .e'o", which I guess is equally about who you ask?

>> No.1085  


"pe'u ko" means "make it so that I am asking you to do something". "pe'u ko klama" is "make it so that I am asking you to do something, someone goes somewhere from somehwere ...".

"pe'u ko" is a vocative phrase and it is not filling the x1 of klama, which is left open. That's why I say you need the terminator if you want "ko" to fill the x1 of klama and not be absorbed by "pe'u" into a vocative phrase.

Now I understand, thank you xorxes!
