Well, Rokbeigalmki has the following:
i /i/ = and
au /O/ = either-or
oi /Oj/ = and/or
The |i| 'and' is contrasted with the feminine prefix |i-| /?i/, showing
that the glottal stop is marginally phonemic in Rokbeigalmki.
In Rokbeigalmki you don't put 'and' between adjectives describing the
gledhwi sudfal sudtekei suddaliiyol
'(a) wide, blue, (and) life-giving sea"
If you did, it'd indicate that you were changing nouns.
