NOTES: Item number

1. ko 'of what' is genitive.
2. pieno, kavos — partitive genitive: 'some of . . .'
3. puodukas, actually diminutive of puodas 'pot, kettle'.
7. With niekuomet 'never', nieko 'nothing', niekur 'nowhere' a double negative
is used; sriubos is also a genitive: the direct object of a negated verb
must be in the genitive case, rather than the accusative.
