Usage notes[edit]

  • klama does not distinguish between coming and going.
  • When translating to English, choose between the two ("coming" or "going") based on the position of the destination relative to the speaker's position.
    • If the destination is away from the speaker, choose a form of "go"
    • If the destination is near the speaker, choose a form of "come"
