Pronoun

-la

  1. we (3 or more people, can be either inclusive or exclusive)

Usage notes

This is the short form of the pronoun nganaṉa. This short form is usually attached to the end of the first word of the main body of the sentence, instead of using nganaṉa. It can also be added to nganaṉa to emphasize it.

Preposition

-la

  1. at, on, in, near, with, etc. for proper nouns that end with a vowel. The equivalent of -ngka, and -ta.
  2. an ending that you use before -kutu and -nguru with proper nouns.

Usage notes

This preposition is added to the end of the proper noun. Sometimes a helper vowel can be added before -la to make it end with a vowel. -ta should be used instead if the word ends with n or l.

Verb Ending

-la

  1. Makes "la" class verbs into commands.

Usage notes

It is added to the end of the verb stem (of the last verb in the series if there is a series of verbs in the command). Sometimes the pronoun -ya can be added after -la, this makes the command addressed to a group of people. Here that pronoun means second person plural instead of third person.
