“Unatoka”? Doesn’t that mean “you are coming from”? I think you would use “Unaondoka”.

-toka is also like "go out", "come out"

with -toka the stress would be where you are coming from (direction etc.) -ondoka would rather stress the immediacy of leaving (at that moment).

Any mother tongue confirmation/observations?
