> 1. to think
narethanaal has three different words meaning "to think":
denka: to think (but not know)
thare _____ [possessive pronoun of your choice] dedenka: to think
(opinion)[this is a construction meaning that "_____" whatever
"_____" is (the opinion) owns whomever's thought... it gets really
complicated if the possessive pronoun is anything other than "my"
because those possessives are formed using "thare" as well]
