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
_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
