The Inverse Operator
We use the little word no to invert or negate a relationship. I can mean slightly different things depending exactly where it appears in a sentence.
- no, mi vizka tu - It is not the case that I see you (no relationship between you and me)
- mi no vizka tu - I don't see you (but there is a relationship between you and me but its not seeing. I could hear you instead, for example)
- mi vizka no tu - I don't see you (I see something but its not you)
