x_{1} (experiencer/function) increases/gains/is incremented/augmented in property/quantity x_{2} such that it achieves/had achieved having that property at 'time' x_{3} (abstraction, number) according to standard x_{4}

x_{1} is increasing in x_{2} for times/conditions determined by context (use ca, va'o, vel sim. in order to specify when increase occurs); times/conditions of increase are not necessarily those of attainment of that property (which is specified by x_{3}). If an abstraction is submitted to x_{3} then the time of event of x_{1} achieving/attaining property x_{2} occurs exactly when/simultaneous with when/if the abstraction occurs (if it is an event) or is true (if it is a proposition, notion, truth value, idea, etc.); since it is increasing in that property and achieves it at that time, if the time determined by context is that determined by x_{3}, then for times slightly later than that time will also have x_{1} having that property but times slightly earlier than that time will not. Numbers submitted to x_{3} determine the lesser/earlier endpoint of a semi-infinite interval through time such that attainment occurs throughout the interval. If a number is submitted to x_{3}, the options are only li ni'u, li no, li ma'u, and li ni'u/ma'u ci'i; li ni'u ci'i being submitted means that x_{1} has always been/had x_{2}, it just happens to be increasing in this property too (at the time specified by context); li ni'u (which is taken to be a finite number) means that there was a time prior to the time specified by context such that x_{1} was/had x_{2} but such has no always been the case, and also that at the time specified by context, it is increasing in this property; li no means that at the time specified by context, x_{1} has just attained being/having property x_{2} and it is also increasing in this respect; li ma'u (which is taken to be a finite positive number) means that x_{1} is increasing in property x_{2} at the time determined by context and that it has not yet (at that time) but will eventually (a finite and positive amount of time later) been classified as having that property properly according to x_{4}; li ma'u ci'i means that x_{1} is increasing in x_{2} at the time specified by context but that it will never actually manage to achieve having that property according to x_{4}, even if it asymptotically and strictly monotonically approaches that status. The time specified in x_{3} need not be the time of when x_{1} is increasing in property x_{2} (which is specified via ca or the like, in the bridi). "Time" in the sense of x_{3} is rather general; for example, it can also just be conditions which were satisfied when attainment is true (such as a subset on which a mathematical function is positive); it is generally an 'IF' statement (id est: attainment might occur at other times or under other conditions). For example, humans, normally, always increase in oldness/age (the context-determined time/conditions of increase in age is (those throughout) the entirety of their life), but are not actually considered old until they reach some age (specified by x_{3}).
