cốh1kohtoptopicalizerIcốh mbár cannóh cốh lâyq bôn ncháng hưt cốh anhêh dyê.Like that I don’t even have anything, even as much as tobacco.Ân práq cốh bưih tallưi cân – cân hưt nưm.The money then isn’t enough for a bundle of tobacco only.Cư ê lư proaq dáng dúng, ma proaq ân itáq parlayh Avóuq Rbang cốh dơi táq.I have a lot of work at home, but the work of doing God’s word TOP I still do.The following examples seem to support the function of topicalizer; however, they are so few examples that it seems better to interpret the cốh as a displaced conjunction. Another possibility is that it is a rare borrowing of the topicalizer function of Vietnamese thì. In that case, we might expect this usage to become more frequent.cfma39Grammar
