Shouldn't "coi rodo" be "coi doi rodo"?

>> No.514  


I do not know. [zo doi] makes the following word a name, although it does direct the vocative. But it would be like saying "Salutation, O' All, you (do something)..."

I would use a terminator for clarity as well.

How does one know when a vocative ends, anyway (with or without a terminator)?

>> No.520  

coi rodo works as well, because all cmavo of COI take a cmene after them; it's even in the definition of DOI that it can be elided after COI.

you know when a vocative ends, when the cmene after it is complete or you have a terminator (if that helps you ;) )

No, it shouldn't be coi doi rodo. It can be, but it is more than necessary.

# All of these are valid uses of cmavo of selma'o COI

  • coi do
  • ki'e do
  • doi do
  • coi djan
  • ki'e djan
  • doi djan
  • coi ro do
  • ki'e ro do
  • doi ro do
  • doi ro do [do'u]
  • coi djan [do'u]
  • ki'e kriltic [do'u]
  • ju'i lojbo [do'u]

Vocatives end with do'u, but it's mostly elidable.
