0 indefinite pronoun
3 3rd person pronoun (proximative)
6 pronoun referring to subject of matrix verb
( attributive form of following verb
[ predicative form of following verb
= (should be \) predicative form of following noun
] predicative form of following adjective (or univalent verb)
^ negative polarity of following predicate
&a and
~ nominalizes what follows
! imperative
kn know (as verb)
fu fool (as noun)
xn sun (as verb)
st student (as noun)
tc teach (as verb)
sl sleep (as adjective/univalent verb)
wk wake (as verb)
wz wise (as adjective)
fw follow (as verb)

(The content words are all temporary mnemonic substitutes.)

The content word prefixes [ etc. determine which of 3 possible words is used along with its syntactical function.
Attributives modify the preceding noun or pronoun.

Does that help?
