x_{1} (person) explains x_{2} (event/state/property) to x_{3} with explanation x_{4} (du'u).

Explanation x_{4} is an underlying mechanism/details/purpose/method for x_{2} (= velcki for reordered places), generally assumed to be non-obvious; metaphorical usage with the various causal relations (i.e. jalge, mukti, krinu, rinka, nibli, zukte) is possible, but the non-obviousness, and the existence of an explainer with a point of view makes this word not a simple expression of cause.
