Urianian has an adverb ony meaning "far away". Actually it's a locative, and it has an accusative form onja and an ablative form onjat as well. "Run far away" would then be pirde onja. There is an adverb evi meaning "away", too. And a verb formed by adding this adverb, opirde, meaning "run away". "Run far away" could thus be expressed with an amplifying particle as opirenjid. Suraetua also has an adjective/adverb/noun "huna" meaning "far away", its form with the -a ending being the nominal form. So "run far away" would then be simply "hunti wini", with "hunti" being the allative of "huna". Also used for "far away" is aka, "away", with the addition of the amplifying particle -egi. Thus, akaegi wini also means "run far away". LEF
