language of the Mandai

Hi, Tom,

Should you make a list of verbs that are easily construed as reciprocal?
e.g.   kiss, fight, discuss....

Also, should you brainstorm a list of types of relationships.   I'm not
thinking about attempting to make this list comprehensive;  just
brainstorming some categories and seeing how many Mandai verbs you can put
into each.


Here are three categories & nine sample verbs...

in parking (car meets lot)
in buying (money meets cashier)
in striking (fist and face collide)

in sex  (being + being)
in nutrition (being + food)
in writing (ink + paper)

in writing (pen from ink)
in exhaling (air from being)
in selling (money from being)

Again, this could all be unsuitable, but I hope it helps.

All the best,
