Previous: Ø½ÔÁ poola contracted:
¤Á pla also occurs in some other constructions, most particularly in
the expression Í»Õ¢»Ô¤Á eduttaaple `right opposite, right in front'.
This apparently derives from the LT form Í»Õ¯ etir `opposite' +
»Ô¨ taan `emphatic' + Ø½ÔÁ poola `as if'.The fact
that this form loses a long vowel Ñ oo, which is otherwise not to be
expected in changes from LT to ST is evidence for the grammaticalization of
this form from a postposition to another grammatical category.
