    Why dont use "sau"?

    Lydia Kurnia P - It seems that "ori" has a "contrastive" sense of "or" [I then saw the word "adversative" used in a discussion of "insa", "dar", and "ci" (and I believe "iar" is in there too)]; whereas "sau" has (only) an "alternative" sense of meaning. . .

    This is an alternative situation that depends on taste or need to match or contrast some other part of the woman outfit so is ori like dar and sau like ci?
