In Verdurian, "sholiser" takes the nominative... putting it in a class
with a couple of other words such as "eta" (about, concerning), "i"
(which can sometimes be translated as 'of' or 'in', as in 'University
of Verduria', or as 'after' in 'named after (someone)'), "she"
('being', as in 'being your king, ...'), and verbs of naming.
