deeply embedded VSO nightmare

So, Vaior is a VSO language.  This is fine and dandy most of the time,
but while writing the primer -- I actually have a very enthusiastic
friend learning the language, and he keeps pushing me on the primer --
I regularly discover just how superficial my previous language
creations were.

Anyway, to my recent horror I have discovered that due to how Vaior
word order works -- VSO, Noun - Modifier, Adj - Modifier -- that
gigantic ambiguities develop when using participles and relative

This is fine:
