That's _palung_ in Ayeri. This word can also mean "other" when used as a pronoun (boring Germanism here).

I wonder how to do that in Ayeri... _X-ang palung (ku-)Y-aris_ "X-AGT (is) different (like/as-)Y-PAT" _X-ang nukamoy Y-aris_ "X (is) not-same (as) Y" _Kamoyiya X-ang Y-aris_ "X is-un-as Y" _Yomoyiya X-ang ku-Y-aris_ "X is-not like-Y" Those would theoretically all be possible, but which one is actually used?
