>Yes, there are some verbs that don't take the directional prefixes: those which are
less transfer oriented. These verbs have slightly different morphology:
jel- "to live"
gnirak- "to snow"
gai- "to sing about" (as opposed to jegai- "to sing to")
mazhdrai- "to dream"
The main differences are (using jegai- as a transfer verb and mazhdrai- as a non-transfer verb):
mazhdraiud "and dreaming" (+ud) ~ jegai (+zero)
mazhdraidz "dream!" (+dz) ~ jegairdz (+rdz) ~ (no- verbs:)
nagigz "route, drive away!"
