The forms soma (< English somebody) 'person' and sani (< English something) 'thing' can express the indefinite pronouns 'someone' and 'something' by themselves, or are preceded by the INDF.SG article wan. In case of the latter, the combination is sometimes written as one word. It can be difficult to distinguish between a nominal and a pronominal interpretation.
