Datapoint Sango/Order of frequency adverb, verb, and object

I can't think of any other way of saying 'often' or 'frequently' (without saying a lot more in the utterance, of course) than lege mingi 'many times'. I would guess that the phrase is not indigenous to Ngbandi but arose in the creation of Sango.
