Exercise 8 in unit 14

Can ‘book’ be absorbed in the following phrase?
sràb wàtxa.
write-fact1 book-fact-fact2.

Solution

Strictly speaking, no, because wàtx. ‘make a book’ isn’t a sub-category verb of sràb. – it can also be understood in the more technical sense of printing and binding a book. However, absorption is possible if the meaning ‘write a book’ is clear from context.
