[tlhIngan Hol] The {-wI'} and the {-lu'}

Whenever we place the {-wI'} on a verb, we produce the meaning "one who
does/is, thing which does/is".

So, if we write {vumwI'} then we have the meaning of "one who works".

But if we wrote instead {vumlu'wI'}, then we would seemingly/apparently get
the meaning "someone (unspecified) who works".

So, the conclusion here is that "the {-wI'} used on its own, talks of
someone specified, while the use of it in conjunction with {-lu'} talks of
someone unspecified" ?
