Dear Claudia,


Malcolm is right lots of ways to express these



In Banoni

        * /nobe /'again'  [post verbal between the verb and object
          clitic pronouns]
        * /meke /'too'  [part of NP after noun]
        * /geroo/    expresses reflexive  [between the verb and object
          clitic pronouns]
                         by itself expresses 'return'



    cheers

    Piet
