Just a placeholder example from a journal article in the works. Disregard the surrounding jargon. It’s pretty bad, but I thought I’d share it anyways (yay semantico-syntactic treeees). I’m considering just leaving the example in there to see what kind of “huh?” reaction it gets out of an editor. Could be fun...

...Except he didn't.

Not that I care, using Bionicle in academic examples is always a good thing.

...Except he didn't.

Depends on the situational interpretation of the sentence. Think about it: the sentence could be saying that Kopaka originated in Ko-Koro (i.e. that's his home village), or it could just be saying that Kopaka physically walked from Ko-Koro.

I'm hoping that this is a hint of a soon-to-be-released Matoran Lesson VI? Please?
