More Information

Although basically just a combination with a suffix, the phrase tu'lu' has become a set phrase meaning there is/are.

The basic difference between the three verbs nej, Sam and tu' is as follows:
  • nej (look for, seek, search for) focusses in the search itself, which is usually an intentional search
  • Sam (locate, seek and find) refers to searching for something including finding it.
  • tu' (discover, observe) is used like when one notices something, usually without searching for it.
