ghItlhpu' SuStel, jatlh:

> -wI' has the effect of nominalizing the verb into the subject of that verb.

> A vutwI' is the thing that performs vut, the subject of vut.

> If you were to say *vutlu'wI', you'd be trying to nominalize the verb into
> a nonexistent subject. No one in particular performs vutlu', so it makes
> no sense to talk about the noun that performs vutlu'.

jang mIp'av:
> As I said, I'd like to hear what MO has to say on the subject.

As would I. As would we all.

> It's bound to be more nuanced, not to mention a lot less bombastic and
> opinionated.

SKI: Based on the facts we have about {-lu'} and {-wI'}, QeS feels on this one SuStel has it right, and thinks it's important for all to remember that the facts we have are, as always, all we have to go on.
