Uisage notes[eedit soorce]

  • Ka is a switchin conjunction. Whan it airts twa clauses or sentences, it conveys that the seicont clause haes a different subject frae the first. In cases whaur the subject remeens the same, the conjunction munu is uised. In the ensaumple abuin, the subject o the seicont clause need nae be "the kangaroo", awtho that seems the maist likely possibility frae context. The ku semply tells us that someane or something ither than wati (the subject o the first clause) ran awey.
  • Awtho ka is spelt wi a short a, the vouel is actually long (kaa). The misleadin spellin exists for historical raisons.
