Omeina uses a different types of construction for each of these ideas, one
adverbial, the other using a declined abstract noun.
(Using the verb mene, to go)
I go = mene da
I am just about to go = I am towards the going
men - ina - ro
[go] - [abstract suffix] - [adessive case]
I have just gone = I am new gone
mene lan da
[go] [new] [I am]

> 1. to have just
> 2. to be about to
