Not a very difficult thing.

This suffix can be used for the meanings of either "when" or "because". Both of these meanings can sometimes be expressed in the same time via this suffix in our language.


The tense and the subject are unclear if the verb is alone.

 You understand by looking at the suffixes at the verb unless you don´t use any other pronouns. If you want to make the subject clear, you use a personal pronoun or something else.
