mai'e NA experimental cmavo

"True, but not the answer that I expected/desired"

Used when one asks a question (usually with ma or the like) and the response is technically correct but not the answer that the original asker was trying to get at/expected/desired/was looking for. In quick speech, this might just be said as "yes but no".

In notes:

mai'a (exp!)
Maybe, but not the desired answer
uoi (exp!)
discursive: marks question construct as allowing filling it with answers that are non-referential constructs only
