Recall the sentence structure template. The following sections deal with the post-field. First up, the different ways of constructing phrases that can be passed as arguments to a verb.
Since Toaq only has verbs, there are a number of determiners to turn those verbs into things which can appear in argument position. The following table lists them:
determiner + verb(al complex) → argument
|the X (previously bound)|
|hoı||the aforementioned X|
|baq||X in general, X-kind|
(For an explanation of ja, see the section on properties.)
Once the syntax is understood, most of the determiners should be self-explanatory. However, a few deserve further inspection:
The determiner hı “which” is Toaq’s primary way of asking wh-questions:
(For more examples of hı, see also the table dealing with question words in this section.)
The determiner baq creates references to kinds:
It is possible to use determiners without an overt complement. The complement is then analogous to an implicit rảı “thing”. This rule does not apply to the tone, because it needs an overt complement as a carrier.
