"en namei wa endot
> wa embir" - made free by (own) strength and cunning;That really should've been "en namei goshu wa endot wa embir", with the
"subject" - goshu; free - of the verbal phrase "en namei"; made - being in
the object position. I suspect the speakers of the language would regard it
as more of an adverb than an adjective or noun.
