"stubborn", from tiu fučip
"to self-teach a goal" ... that is, to have a goal and be one's own guide (teacher) in which goal to pursue and how to get there. Like most verbs ending in -p, this is reflexive. Thus one says Fufšefo
"I'm stubborn", Fufšefe
"you're stubborn", Fufšefa
"He's stubborn", and so on with various agents.
"to block someone's path" ... refers to being stubborn with respect to *other* people's goals.
"stubborn", an exact cognate of the Pabappa word. However, this is a reflexive verb, meaning that it appears in the present tense as tissa
, which is homophonous with "frog". Even though there is no confusion possible here ... the word for frog would need a suffix of its own to be the predicate of any sentence ... I may have the Pabaps use a folk etymology here and replace the whole concept of stubbornness with an attribute of frogs, and use it with modifiers such as saying
Pispada pappi tissa pisa.
The judge is a tough punisher
(lit: a punishment frog).
Without the folk etymology, the sentence would make more sense without pisa
"is (a)" at the end:
Pispada pappi tissa.
The judge sentences stubbornly
