"This juice is 75% apple and 25% orange." using {ce'i}?

>> No.335  

I've never used "ce'i" before that I recall, but I guess it would go something like this:

ti jisra ze mu ce'i plise .e re mu ce'i najnimre

>> No.339  


That's more like "this is juice from 75% of an apple and 25% of an orange" (or "75% of some apples and 25% of some oranges"), but what we want is 75% and 25% of the juice:

ze mu ce'i ti jisra lo plise .i je re mu ce'i ti jisra lo najnimre

Or, perhaps:

ti jisra lo plise ze mu ce'i mai jo'u lo najnimre re mu ce'i mai
"This is juice from apples (75%-ly) and oranges (25%-ly)"

>> No.345  


Couldn't the subject/referent of [zo <<ti] change in between statements? Could one use [le goi] instead? Or would that refer to the percentage?

>> No.346  


For the first example, I mean.

I regret the further bump.

>> No.349  


ti will be whatever the speaker is pointing at, so yes they could point at something different the second time, or they could point at the same thing. It's up to the speaker.

I think "le go'i" might be the 75% made of apple in this case, but one can say "ti goi ko'a zo'u ze mu ce'i ko'a ... .i je re mu ce'i ko'a ..."

>> No.355  


Can the {mai} parts each come before their respective sumti:

{ti jisra ze mu ce'i mai lo plise jo'u re mu ce'i mai lo najnimre}?

>> No.356  


"number MAI" is a free modifier (like vocatives, parentheticals and attitudinals) so it can go just about anywhere, but it will attach to the preceding word.

You could say "ti jisra lo ze mu ce'i mai plise jo'u lo re mu ce'i mai najnimre".
