Why is it kony and not bony?

Bony/bisy (the ones with "b") are for animate things (like people or probably animals), while kony/kesy (the ones with "k") are for inanimate objects (like the sword in this sentence).

HV does distinguish between animate and inanimate in several places (you will also find something similar in the questions chapter, for example, where there is a similar difference between "sparos" and "skoros").
