vala vala occurs in two different constructions: (a) it occurs with nominals (nouns, possessive pronouns, adjectives), and adverbs, and (b) it occurs with the inflected infinitive of a verb. In the former case, it has the approximate meaning of ‘one with’, ‘one who/which is’, ‘one who/which is normally in’, or ‘one who is professionally associated with’. If, however, it follows a time adverbial, it means ‘going to, or about to verb’. In the latter case, it has an agentive meaning, similar to the meaning of –er in words such as driver, worker, sweeper , etc. in English. A.
