I can't say that I see any considerable difference between them.
Perhaps I *feel* the "I eat and I drink too" as being slightly more
emphatic, than the "I eat and I drink". But perhaps I'm influenced by
greek on this.

It's the {qaleghpu' je}.

Well, it's not a major problem, but what led me to the question of
this thread, was whether we could use the {je} to express the "I drink
(in addition to doing other things)".

Just wondering, is all..

ok, thanks. Good to know.
