There’s a large animal in the garden. It’s a horse. No, it’s a big dog. My dog is lazy, but that dog of yorus is industrious and busy. The milk in the box is often warm, but it is not too warm today.


Note: we already met mise in lesson 21, now we introduce the other emphatic forms of the pronouns. They may be used either for emphasis, or contrast. Notice that esan violates the slender-broad rule; this occurs with a handful of compound words. The tendency is to pronounce it esan, so that the s is broad.
