Sentence connectors

Sentence connectors unambiguously mark the beginning of a new sentence. They are always optional, since illocution already marks the end of the previous sentence.

Ø unmarked sentence start
je new topic, taking the floor
keo “but”, “however”
tıu “so”, “therefore”
fou “by the way” (go on tangent)
nhu “anyway” (return to old topic)
