<< Good example. The referential case can be used adverbially; word order

reclusiveness, stubbornness, and unwillingness to explore. So the sentence
would be taken to mean something like "He left with his mind unchanged."
But I digress.)
I probably need to clarify the difference between the abstract connotations
of the collective number and the metaphorical use of the referential case.
These are two ideas that dovetail congenially, but maybe the former is a
bit superfluous if I have the latter. >>
Yeah, yeah, I really like it! Excellent concept.
