Subject: expressing pleasure
How many of you express pleasure with a transitive verb such as 'to like' as opposed to 'to be pleasing to.' <<< In Pisina: The one feeling pleasure is subject of active or attributive verb and the stimulus for pleasure is stimulus (i mokoso nai...= @ stimulus that's...) or primary object (preposition nai or no preposition) or agent (preposition kai.) Also possible: The stimulus is subject of applicative/factitive verb and the one feeling pleasure is object (no preposition or preposition nai). µ.
