As these examples above, the subject of the two verbs is the the same. However, if it is not, a causal relationship is implied:
ÇÂç ÂÀÔ×¾ ¼Ô¨ Ø½ÔØÆ¨ avaru varaame, naan pooneen `Since he didn't come, I left'
In this example there are two different subjects, ÇÂç avaru and ÇÂ¨ avan; consequently, there is a cause-and-effect relationship implied: `A doing Vb resulted in B doing Vb'. When È×¾ -aame is used with two non-coreferential subjects (the two subjects are NOT identical), È×¾ -aame forms are synonymous with È»»ÆÔ×Á -aadadanaale forms. That is, the following is synonymous with the immediately previous example:
ÇÂç ÂÀÔ»»ÆÔ×Á ¼Ô¨ Ø½ÔØÆ¨ avaru varaatatanaale, naan pooneen `since he didn't come, I left'
Further discussion of È»»ÆÔ×Á -aatatanaale forms can be found in § 6.14.
