I'm going to call that a no-op. It adds a place, and then fills it
with the "ignore this place" marker.

<kpreid> Hm. Does the term {ca zi'o} mean something, or is it a no-op?
<bancus> concurrent with nothing
<bancus> I'd interpret it as being the same effectively as noroi
<bancus> although perhaps a bit stronger
<kpreid> ?!
<kpreid> If anything, it should mean "independent of time"
<bancus> how can something be independent of time?
<kpreid> li pa su'i ri du li ci ca zi'o
<kpreid> zi'o is *not* noda.
<bancus> co roda
<bancus> er
<bancus> ca
<bancus> zi'o is not noda, indeed
<bancus> but it effectively erases the possibility of it being ca
<bancus> in my book, that means the same thing as never
<bancus> besides there's a word that means "for all time"

What are your opinions?
