    I find the layout and information very clear and helpful but don’t understand the `sa’ and `sou’ form.

      Particia, Thanks for the feedback. I tried to improve the explanation of the sa-form. Is it better now?

      If not, what is the part which is hard to understand. How to build it or what it is about?

      Thanks for your help. Nicolas
