The term 'neka' is an early loanword, apparently from Spanish. It means to deny or refuse someone something. As a noun, it means a denial or refusal or denial or refusal in general. As a verb, it is treated as a happat verb of communciation, although it can refer to much beyond communciation. It takes an ergative refuser, an absolutive thing or statement refused or denies, and a dative party the denied thing is denied to.
Ja Mari hanne neka y jymjym ija paluh
