    Should the dictionary entry for the pronoun form of Pyaa include it?
    My comment to George Ironstrack’s post was manetwa pyaaci (snow is coming).
    The meaning given in the IDLA Dictionary for pyaaci is he or she is coming.
    It omits the pronoun it. However, a later entry in the dictionary says that
    manetwa pyaaci means the snow is coming.

    Thank You,

    1. Good question Jim! Our verbs don’t require pronouns. Manetwa isn’t an “it” in our language. So in a sentence manetwa works just like alemwa ‘dog’ or alenia ‘man’ when used together with pyaaci.
