Preposition "igo" is a passive modifier. Examples:
"ila oga eba igo ufyci" = I was almost killed.
"yditoby igo ujeti idi ila" = The bananas are bought by me.
PS. Patrick Hassel-Zein is going to add more pronouns
to the preposition table and redefine some prepositions,
so the spelling of "igo" may change. The most stable
parts of the Ygyde language are the prefix table,
the adjective table, and the noun table. This means
that the dictionary is rather stable as well.
