So what I'm learning so far I think.. Correct me if I'm wrong is words ending in the ī suffix are inclusive plural and words ending in the ā suffix are inclusive singular ex.) Valī; meaning "and the men". Or. Valā; meaning and the man.
I dont get how," the men and the girl are asleep." Can be classified as wrong.
Because the sentence is Girl + and the men + are sleeping. Not the men and the girl. The word "valī" is specifically used to mean "and the men". I'm seeing a trend in these comments of people putting males first in their answers when the grammer doesn't allow for that.
