§ 36

§ 36.

In an affirmative Sentence the predicate stands first, and the subject after it; and two nouns, or an adjective and a noun, placed in these relative positions, form a sentence although without a verb. In a negative sentence, this relative position is apparently (§ 39) reversed.

Sentences of this kind are made either with or without the specific particle ko.
